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.

We organised an ETHICASTHON, which included 24 hours of ethics conversations, in 32 sessions gathering together 1,500 people around the globe.
