Ethics Unwrapped with IGE's Anthony J. Gray(Madison, WI) - On September 25, IGE President and CEO Anthony Gray spoke to students at the University of Texas-Austin's McCombs School of Business. Gray's talk dovetailed with the school's Ethics Unwrapped initiative, a hugely popular program it launched in 2012. His talk, "Uneven Slopes," was sponsored by the Bates Family Foundation, the BGS Department, and the McCombs Ethics Speakers series.

Robert Prentice a professor of business law and business ethics and Chair of the Department of Business, Government & Society at the McCombs School of Business said, "Mr. Gray gave our University of Texas students the same tools that, thanks to IGE training, businesses have been using to address real-world ethical challenges for 25 years."

"Today's business students will be tomorrow's business leaders," said Gray. "If they learn that core ethical principles are valuable business assets rather than business obstacles, the next generation's corporate culture will have a giant head start. The Ethics Unwrapped initiative is an enormous step toward that goal, and it's exactly the kind of thing we're trying to encourage at IGE."

The Ethics Unwrapped initiative focuses on teaching undergraduate and graduate students strategies for effectively solving ethical dilemmas. In only two years, the program has had an international impact, with its social-media profile expanding far beyond the school to reach hundreds of thousands of YouTube viewers, and it was recently awarded a $150,000 grant from the Teagle Foundation.
