Global Ethics Day - 16 October
Global Ethics Day is an annual, international day dedicated to exploring the role of ethics in today’s world.
Founded by the Carnegie Council, organisations are encouraged to hold programmes focusing on ethics, such as lectures, film screenings, debates, panel discussions, or activities to protect the environment.
Why does ACCA support Global Ethics Day?
We support Carnegie Council’s aims to explore the role of ethics in a globalised world.
With ethics at our heart, ACCA leads the accountancy profession. And our members have the edge - their lifelong commitment to ethical practice begins the moment they sign up to study our qualification, across their learning journey and into their career as a member of ACCA. This makes our members essential to business today and in the future.
