Jeffrey Seglin, lecturer in public policy at Harvard Kennedy School (HKS), has been awarded the 2015 Lifetime Achievement Award by Trust Across America-Trust Across the World, after being named one of the Top 100 Thought Leaders in Trust for the fifth year in a row.

“I remain surprised to be chosen for this list, but welcome the opportunity to be included among so many individuals who are working hard to shine a light on the need for integrity and trust in business, media, government, education, nonprofit, and other organizations,” said Seglin. “I’ve long subscribed to the notion that Robert Coles writes about in The Call of Stories: Teaching and the Moral Imagination that character is ‘how you behave when no one is looking.’ I’m thrilled that this list brings attention to the good works of many people, but even more determined to try to do good even when no one is looking.”

The list of Top Thought Leaders is an effort to recognize those whose work has resulted in more trustworthy behavior in the business world.

Trust Across America-Trust Across the World 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 serves as program director for the HKS Communications Program, 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  affilated with the Kennedy School's Shorenstein Center on the Media, Politics and Public Policy.
