Exploring the relationship between integrity and responsible business

Facilitators: Professor Martin Calnan, Dr. Jeremy Chapman x RSA

This launch event will celebrate the ambition to develop and to further the practice of integrity through dialogue, exchange, exploration, education and research in an international and multi-cultural context, in order for integrity to become a way of being in the world.


Event time: Thu 6th Jun 2024 at 7:30pm - Thu 6th Jun 2024 at 9:00pm

The choices we face are inescapably knotty, messy, entangled, confused and confusing. In this context, acting with integrity cannot be limited to simply knowing which rules to apply. In fact, integrity becomes invaluable precisely when the rulebooks no longer suffice.

And when we step into the uncharted territory of the new and the emergent, it is then that acting with integrity becomes essential.

The Launch Event

What does it really mean to be a person of integrity and why do so many organisations cite it as their highest value and yet struggle to effectively incorporate it into their culture and practices, beyond a compliance-led, box-ticking exercise? How do we find it and, more importantly, hold on to it – as individuals and organisations? We examine why it has the power to enhance individual agency, wider society and corporate flow and argue that it is a fundamental prerequisite for sustainable economic success.

Building on long-standing experience and research in such diverse fields as ethics, futures literacy, leadership and change, we are proud to announce the creation of the Integrity Academy. Our ambition is to develop and further the practice of integrity through dialogue, exchange, exploration, education and research in an international and multi-cultural context, in order for integrity to become a way of being in the world.
