Business Ethics

The Markkula Center for Applied Ethics is a catalyst for dialogue on the best way to create an ethical organizational culture within Silicon Valley businesses and around the globe.

We offer a wealth of resources in business ethics. Our programs focus on businesses in the Silicon Valley, whose practices are a bellwether for the performance of worldwide companies especially in the technology sector, but also more broadly. We believe that it is especially important to impact business leaders, as tone at the top influences the entire ethical culture of an organization. We work with senior management teams, corporate boards, ethics and compliance officers, human resource and leadership development professionals.
