In this presentation, Jacqui will examine ethics in international business through a practical lens. She will explore the Daniels Fund Ethics Initiative Principles and how they are a part of good business practices by diving into real life examples of actions companies have taken, focusing on the tough challenges businesses face when doing business in other countries, and analyzing the decisions their leaders have made. Jacqui will evaluate other paths they could have chosen which would have followed the Principles more effectively, how such choices would have changed their course of business, why they followed a different path, and how to get them to operate more ethically.
