Our working groups takes a focused approach to a single issue or topic that is important to the ethics & compliance industry and workplaces worldwide. You will work with other E&C professionals via online collaboration tools and conference calls to develop a report on the topic to be shared with the ECI community.

Your working group participation includes independent research, online collaboration and monthly conference calls in which you and fellow members will:

  • Study a problem or issue facing the ethics & compliance industry
  • Conduct original research and compile key data points
  • Develop a full, four-page report to be distributed to all ECI members

Published reports are provided free to ECI members and are an invaluable resource to CECO’s and other ethics professionals. You will have a hand in elevating the conversation and quality of research available to your industry peers who are seeking to improve the strength and success of their E&C programs.

Working Group participation is an included benefit to Organizational and Fellows level members of ECI. Individual members are subject to a participation fee.
