Our events are hosted by one of the NIBE stakeholder or partner organisations and are opportunities to meet with other people interested and concerned with business ethics. They are arranged at various locations throughout the North East, either directly or in partnership with others with the aim of sharing information on business ethics, discussing current dilemmas and sharing good practice.  

Only one month’s events are shown at a time. Click left or right to view future or past events.
