2011 Oregon Ethics in Business Awards banquet set for June 15, 2011

The Oregon Ethics in Business (OEIB) program is a partnership between Rotary Club of Portland, Atkinson Graduate School of Management at Willamette University, and the Portland Business Journal, with the goal of celebrating organizations and individuals who demonstrate ethical behavior beyond the expected.

This event serves not only as a point of pride for Atkinson students and alumni, but also for the entire state of Oregon. For-profit businesses, not-for-profit organizations, and individuals are nominated annually by community members across the state; these nominees are subject to underwriting and due diligence by our own Atkinson Graduate School of Management MBA candidates over a two-month period, and the students' finalized reports are delivered to a selection committee that makes the final recipient selections.

Join us to celebrate the business ethics of today and build the foundation for strong business ethics in the future!

Wednesday, June 15, 2011 at 7 p.m.
Governor Hotel at 614 SW 11th Avenue in downtown Portland
