Upcoming Events


Winning with Integrity

Thursday, October 19, 2017

Our third breakfast program in the Winning with Integrity series will feature Beth Brooke-Marciniak, global vice chair for public policy at EY. The series focuses on linkages between sports and leadership beyond sports including ethical and organizational issues that challenge athletes, professionals and executives. Brooke-Marciniak leads the firm’s initiative mentoring women athletes to further develop their leadership talents as they move from sports into other organizational and business roles in society. Her remarks will be followed by a panel discussion.

Winning with Integrity events are co-organized by CEBC and the Veritas Institute.  To register, click here.
