Jeffrey Seglin, HKS lecturer in public policy, has been named one of the Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior by “Trust Across America” for the second consecutive year.
“I’m always surprised to be included among any list,” said Seglin. “But it’s good to be associated with a group of people who appear to be doing such good work in both trying to hold company’s accountable and helping business establish and maintain integrity.”
The list of Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trustworthy Business Behavior is Trust Across America’s attempt to shine a spotlight on those people whose efforts have helped address the breakdown and have resulted in more trustworthy behavior in the business world.
Trust Across America™ is a collaborative initiative whose aim is rebuild trust in American business. Over the years it has identified a series of events and shifts in corporate culture that have led to a breakdown in trustworthy behavior in public companies.
Seglin, who is also the communications program director for the Joan Shorenstein Center on the Press, Politics and Public Policy, writes “The Right Thing,” a weekly column on general ethics that has been syndicated by Tribune Media Services since September 2010. Seglin lectures widely on business ethics and is regularly featured as an expert on ethics on CNN, CNBC, Fox 25 Boston, and other media outlets.
