About the Ethics Forum

Ethical behaviour is a leadership choice that informs all aspects of occupational and personal lives. The Ethics Forum was established by Newcastle University Business School and the Bridge Club to bring together a network of individuals interested in organisational and business ethics. It is open to business people, individuals and academics from the North East region and beyond and designed to bridge the gap between academic theory and organisational practice.

Contributors have included Philip Angier, Chairman of the Board of Shared Interest, Mags Vaughan, Business Director of Traidcraft, Shami Chakrabarti, Director of Liberty, Sir Robert Worcester, founder of MORI and Sir George Russell, Deputy Chairman of ITV.
