NEWARK, N.J., April 9, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ --  The Rutgers Institute for Ethical Leadership (IEL) will host its fourth annual Ethical Leadership Conference bringing together business and academic leaders in corporate social responsibility (CSR) to share lessons learned and help attendees work through challenges in starting and developing CSR programs.

"Ethics in Action: A Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility" will be held April 19 from 9:00 a.m.4:00 p.m. at the Newark Museum (49 Washington Street, Newark, NJ), near the Rutgers campus in Newark.

  • Archie Carroll, Ph.D., Terry College of Business, University of Georgia and co-author of the industry reference guide "Corporate Responsibility: The American Experience" will ground the discussion in ethics and present the last 60 years on CSR's history in the U.S.
  • Timothy J. McClimon, vice president, CSR, American Express, president of American Express Foundation and author of the industry-leading blog " CSR Now!," will offer the business case for CSR and insights into the future of socially responsible companies.

"Many New Jersey companies are recognized as being among the most ethically-managed and socially responsible in the world," said Rutgers IEL Co-Founder James Abruzzo. "We are thrilled at the opportunity to support the state's culture of ethical leadership and for the conference group of CSR experts to provide business, nonprofit and academic leaders solutions to their challenges."

This year's conference is the fourth annual event hosted by Rutgers IEL. Previous topics have included developing an ethical culture, generational viewpoints on ethics, and effective use of social media.
