When your job is to teach corporations to do the right thing – CNN Business

Americans are concerned about some of the corporate practices that put people at risk: Mining and selling data in ways that compromise privacy. Using facial recognition software that leads to biased decisions. Sourcing materials from countries with few environmental or labor protections.

That’s one reason why companies are putting more explicit emphasis on their ethical standards both publicly and internally.
But how they formalize their commitment to ethics varies widely. There’s no hard data, but many Fortune 500 companies now have a c-suite role that deals explicitly with ethics, said Patricia Harned, CEO of the Ethics & Compliance Initiative.
