International Conversation Cafe
After two years of virtual Forums, we are finally together in-person! To celebrate our reunion, we are foregoing our usual opening plenary address. Instead, we want to take the time reacquaint ourselves, rediscover the enjoyment of face-to-face conversations, and have a meaningful dialogue on ethics and compliance issues.

A randomly assigned number is on the back of your Forum badge. Please seat yourself at the corresponding table number for this session. Once you find your table, please introduce yourself to your partners and designate a volunteer to share insights at the end of the Cafe.

At the start of the Cafe, we will share a few questions on the screen to get the conversations started.

  1. How Do You Become a Great Ethical Leader?
    Steven Pegg, International Ethics Manager, Lockheed Martin
    Moderated by ECI
    In this session, we will share why some leaders get it so wrong and how ethics can help them to become a model ethical leader at any level in the organisation including encouraging a speak up mindset in a culturally diverse and hybrid workforce, responding to reports of misconduct and techniques for leaders to use illustrated through case studies.
  2. Inspection by the French Anti-corruption Agency: Bending Without Breaking
    Eric Balastre, Deputy Director of Ethics and Deployment, Renault and Iohann Le Frappeur, Group Chief Ethics Officer, SNCF
    Moderated by CEA
    It’s the moment dreaded by all compliance officers in France: the audit by the French Anti-Corruption Authority (AFA). Created in 2017, the AFA has since audited a significant number of well-known French companies: among them, Renault, and the SNCF. For what results? How to prepare for it? What should we be aware of to get out of it as well as possible? Feedback from experience to better prepare for authority controls, whatever their status or nationality.
  3. Speak Up & Internal Investigation: Trust, Empowerment and Digital Tools
    Audrey Morin, Group Compliance Director, Schneider Electric
    Moderated by CEA
    In a post-covid world that has accelerated digitization and at a time when the European directive on whistleblowers is being transposed, how can we set up and maintain a reliable and effective system for managing alerts and investigations? Answer from a multi-hub company that relies on trust, empowerment of local teams and new digital tools.

  1. Engaging Your Employees Through Ethics in Motion
    Anne-Violaine Monnié, Group Ethics Officer, Capgemini
    Moderated by CEA
    In 2022, Capgemini put together the global campaign Ethics in Motion across 50 countries to celebrate a decade of being recognised as one of the World’s Most Ethical Companies®. This month-long campaign was live on internal and social media channels. It was launched by our Group CEO and had 3 pillars: human rights, ethics in data and AI, and ethical culture. We organised an ETHICASTHON, which included 24 hours of ethics conversations, in 32 sessions gathering together 1,500 people around the globe. We also streamed a global plenary with leading experts, which attracted 1,000 people. Anne-Violaine Monnié, Group Ethics Officer at Capgemini, will talk more about how they were able to successfully engage their workforce with this campaign.
  2. Quiet Quitting: Ethics Implications and Risks
    Ursula Wellen, Ethics Advisor and Head of the Ethics Office, International Monetary Fund
    Moderated by IBE
    This session looks at what happens when employees engage in “quiet quitting”, reducing the time, effort and overall engagement in their job to the bare minimum they can get away with – and why this drop in overall employee engagement can have significant – direct and indirect – ethics implications and risks. The session also looks at what may trigger quiet quitting, why it has become more prevalent during and after the pandemic – and what Ethics professionals can do to help their employer deal with its fallout. Participants will have an opportunity to explore these questions in a case study-based format.
  3. Measuring and Assessing Corporate Culture
    Dominic Hall, Group Head of Ethical Business Conduct, BAE Systems plc
    Moderated by IBE
    Corporate culture is key to an effective ethics programme – it’s a vital internal control. In this session, Dominic will set out the basics on why culture is so important, talk us through the work BAE Systems have done recently on assessing Ethical Leadership, and then facilitate a discussion on the way various participants have attempted to measure their corporate culture.
  4. Independent Meetings & Sponsorships: Business Case and Reflections
    Chiara Moscato, Senior Director, E&C Europe, Sameta and South America, Eli Lilly and Company
    Moderated by ECI
    In this session, we will try to address some ethical questions related to independent sponsorships and their execution across the pharmaceutical environment, how to apply good judgement and what are the main things to watch out for as a leader.

Cercle d’Éthique des Affaires (CEA) of France

The Cercle d’Ethique des Affaires was founded in 1993 and is the longest serving Ethics and Compliance Association in France. In 2011, its Articles of Association were amended to keep abreast with the evolution of the profession with the goal to become a leading think tank where researchers and practitioners freely exchange on Ethics and Compliance so as to strengthen the integration of Ethics and Compliance into managerial decisions.

The CEA is first and foremost a trusted place where Ethics and Compliance professionals i.e. officers in corporations and organisations come to meet their peers, discuss, benchmark, learn, share, etc. on a confidential basis, in various formats especially designed for them.

The CEA offers various activities to help strengthen its members’ professional practice from “reflecting” on prospective topics at “Conférences Prospectives” (Prospective Discussions), to “learning” about a new law, or “doing” practical case studies, or “sharing” by conducting specific benchmarks in small working groups at the “Ateliers Pratiques” (Practical Workshops). The CEA also organises book reviews with writers in the “Librairie de l’Éthique” (Ethics Book Club), and an annual Conference between Academics and Practitioners. The 2019 Conference will be on Ethics & Artificial Intelligence.

The CEA partners with other organisations such as the IBE and ECI. In 2013, it became the French Chapter of European Business Ethics Network.

It also participates in numerous conferences to influence public and private decision-makers in order to reinforce the position of Ethics and Compliance in corporations and organisations.
