Creating a Strong Corporate Compliance Program

Board members, business owners, employees, and even customers should all be interested in a company’s compliance policies and adherence to them. Why? Because there is much at stake.

Join us for this episode when we ask two compliance experts about the greatest challenges in creating a strong compliance program and establishing a corporate culture that supports it. We welcome Ivan Fong, Senior Vice President of Legal Affairs and General Counsel at 3M. In 2018, 3M was named to Forbes’ list of Most Reputable Companies, Ethisphere’s list of World’s Most Ethical Companies, and Glassdoor’s list of Best Places to Work, among other honors. We are also pleased to have Lori Martin, Partner at WilmerHale, join us. Lori has an extensive compliance practice, where she helps numerous clients audit and strengthen their current compliance programs.
