In this episode of The Ethics Experts, Nick welcomes Carole Switzer, Co-Founder and President of OCEG, a global nonprofit think tank and online community of more than 85,000 individuals in 80+ countries devoted to integrated governance risk management, and compliance (GRC). Nick spoke with Carole about her origins in the E&C profession and the founding of OCEG in 2002. Carole speaks about how she and her colleagues recognized the need to integrate and share data between previously siloed departments and how the concept of “GRC” sprung from this.
She and Nick spoke about how GRC is the key to getting a seat at the table. By asking what compliance and risk management means in the context of a company’s business goals, compliance professionals are able to speak the language of corporate decision makers.
