Creating a Subculture of Ethical Business Practices
Did you know that corruption is a culture?
A culture is that characteristic features, beliefs, social forms, and material traits shared by people in a place or time. In many instances, corruption is a culture. To combat this, the International Economic Justice League is creating a culture of ethical business practices.
The International Economic Justice League, Inc. (“IEJL”), a California, nonprofit corporation, was founded in 2016 with a mission to abate corruption and promote ethics in business.
The objective of IEJL is to create a culture of ethical commerce among young leaders which will sustain and flourish as they grow into policy and transaction creating positions, thereby eliminating the incidence of all forms of corruption (abuse of power) in business across all industries.
IEJL defines a pledge as a future leader who has taken the “IEJL Oath of Ethical Commerce.” Through the utilization of education and peer support, IEJL strives to enculturate these pledges into a corruption-free community of young leaders. These future leaders will then carry ethical business practices into their influential positions within businesses and government agencies. Once ethically conscious management is established within a variety of industries, ethical business practices will become a crucial standard, giving rise to a wave of ethical change. Companies who do not practice ethical commerce will be pressured to either address their corrupt practices or risk being left behind by an ethically conscious community.
