Forum History and Founders

James A. and Linda R. Mitchell, in cooperation with The American College of Financial Services, founded the Forum on Ethical Leadership in 2001.

The Forum is an event that emphasizes collaboration and conversation among academics and executives. The Forum is a cornerstone of the Cary M. Maguire Center for Ethics in Financial Services and its activities, bringing together industry leaders, accomplished producers, and prominent business ethicists to reinforce the need to connect values and good business practices.
