IBE Future Leaders Ethics Network

Shaping a more ethical future!

The IBE is proud to announce the launch of the IBE Future Leaders Ethics Network, a dynamic initiative designed to supercharge our ability to achieve the IBE's core purpose: to champion the highest standards of ethical behaviour in business.

This network isn't just about young leaders – it's led by future leaders. We're building a diverse community of young professionals in their early careers who are actively learning, reflecting and leading the charge towards a more ethical business landscape.

Why join the IBE Network?

  • Learn: Gain access to events and online resources designed to equip you with the tools and knowledge to lead ethically
  • Reflect: Share your experiences and ideas with peers who share your commitment to ethical leadership and collaborate on real-world initiatives
  • Lead: Shape the future of ethical leadership, driving positive change within your organisation and communities.

Together, we will develop research and insights to enable business to hear the hopes and expectations of future leaders. This will provide invaluable guidance to businesses, allowing them to better understand and meet the aspirations of this critical generation.
