As supply professionals interfacing with differing cultures, we often find ourselves asking, “What’s the right thing to do?” This powerful and dynamic session helps us understand that, despite the complexities of today’s global economy, we all share a universal set of core values that guides our decision making around social responsibility, human rights, and sustainable solutions. Discover how to resolve tough right-versus-right dilemmas, how moral courage helps us take action when our values are put to the test, and how we can build a culture of integrity in our organization that outlasts the individuals currently working there. Be prepared to raise your own questions during the Q&A.
