The grant will enable the IEL to continue its programs, including an annual Ethical Leadership Conference that attracts business, nonprofit, and academic leaders from across the country. This year's conference, Ethics in Action: A Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility, will be held April 19 at the Newark Museum. The conference includes prestigious Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) leaders, a panel discussion with CSR experts, and highlights of successful social impact programs that provide valuable insight for leaders to integrate into their own CSR strategies.
"Prudential has a long-standing commitment to ethical leadership and social responsibility, and we are honored that the Company and Foundation chose to continue support at this level," said IEL co-founders James Abruzzo and Alex Plinio. "The development of ethical leadership requires a long-term commitment and this grant will enable us to continue working with our fellow management service organizations as we continue to be a resource in the community," Abruzzo and Plinio concluded.
