Innovation does not happen in a vacuum, but through dialogue. ECI offers a suite of events designed to equip your E&C team to improve your program. Through our events, you and your program staff will not only gain exposure to new and emerging issues through research; you will transform that research into practice through peer-to-peer networking and idea exchange. ECI events are limited in size because discourse is better when every voice can be heard.

    Building a Respectful Workplace: Few would dispute that civility and respect in the workplace have been "at risk" and deteriorating at a rapid pace.  The Fall 2018 Best Practices Forum will consider the root causes and E&C impacts of this important movement.  Discussion includes ways to encourage the practice of speaking truth to power and holding leaders accountable, leveraging respect as a pathway to healthy organizational culture, and, most importantly, developing and implementing practical strategies to nurture respect, dialogue and civility in the context of ethics and compliance.  Because we live in a dynamic time of change, each ECI event includes discussion of current events affecting compliance professionals. Multiple members of your team are encouraged to attend to participate in high-level interactive and peer-to-peer sharing of innovative practices.

    Who should attend? Open to all.
