The Conference on Business & Ethics is a morning event for regional business, professional and community leaders who are committed to ethical career and social practices.
In today’s competitive business climate, the cornerstones of faith, integrity and service above self are often overlooked. It has become a tradition and remains a great honor for the Orange Catholic Foundation to bring these values back to the forefront of business through this faith-based initiative.
On the morning of Friday, March 4, 2016, the Orange Catholic Foundation will sponsor the 14th Annual Conference on Business & Ethics with Bishop Robert Barron, Auxiliary Bishop of Los Angeles, and Wing Lam as our keynote speakers. Bishop Barron is author of 11 books, host of television and radio programs, and the award winning series, Catholicism. He is also the founder of Word on Fire Catholic Ministries. Wing Lam is the CEO of Wahoo’s Fish Tacos, a restaurant chain with over 70 locations nationwide. His family’s foundation supports various charitable initiatives, including ending hunger, supporting the environment and expanding educational opportunities for children.
While the purpose of the Conference on Business & Ethics is to provide an annual forum for business leaders in Orange County, it also raises funds to provide financial aid for Catholic elementary school students in the Diocese of Orange. The Conference on Business & Ethics has raised more than $2,000,000 to support tuition assistance grants for our local Catholic schools.
This forum has become the premier event in Orange County where a faith based community of influential business, religious, academic, and philanthropic leaders can gather, knowing that they share a common commitment to ethical best practices in their daily lives.
