Dispatches From Converge 2018

The Converge 2018 compliance conference happened in Denver this week, where several hundred ethics and compliance officers gathered to breathe thin air and discuss this year’s theme: “ethics in action.”

Alas, Radical Compliance could not be on the scene to report events as they happened. So below are a few dispatches from Twitter and elsewhere, in case you’re curious what was said and what you may have missed.

Obligatory photo of conference welcome sign.


Chuck D — yes, that Chuck D, from Public Enemy, delivered a talk on organizational justice. Seen below with Convercent CEO Patrick Quinlan.

An excellent point raised about internal whistleblower reporting.


Also spotted: another good point about compliance-based due diligence in M&A.


GRC industry analyst Mike Rasmussen, who is indeed a thoughtful person, manages to hit every compliance industry buzzword all in one tweet.


And this point, while correct, would be so much more awesome if the compliance officer for New Jersey Transit had said it.

Hui Chen, speaking about ethics in practice. Not entirely sure I agree with her point below, but it does make you think.


More music: these folks were the closing entertainment on Day 1. They’re about to rock. Salute them.


That’s all for Converge 2018. Congratulations to Convercent for what seems to be an event well-done and well-received by attendees. If you want to see more dispatches yourself, the hashtags are #EthicsInAction and #Converge18.
