The International Economic Justice League
Creating a Subculture of Ethical Business Practices
Did you know that corruption is a culture?
A culture is the characteristic features, beliefs, social forms, and material traits shared by people in a place or time. In many companies and pans of government, corruption and ethical lapses have become a way of life. It has become a culture which transcends all economic classes, religions, races, and social groups. To combat this culture of corruption, the International Economic Justice League is creating a community that will develop and support the use of ethical business practices among its members.
The International Economic Justice League, Inc. (“IEJL”) is a California nonprofit 501 (c) (3) corporation, founded in 2016, tasked with the mission to abate corruption and promote ethical business practices.
The objective of IEJL is to create a community of ethical commerce among young leaders which will sustain and flourish as they grow into policy and transaction creating positions, thereby subsiding all practices of corruption and abuses of power in business across all industries.
IEJL plants the seeds for an ethical future through its Pledges. 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. The combination of ethical awareness and a strong network of peer support will empower these future leader to stand up to corruption as they hold 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 change. Governments and 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.
