In September 2014, the U.S. Office of Government Ethics (OGE) successfully completed an exciting new venture to deliver the highest quality training in an entirely different way, one that charged the ethics program with a new level of energy: the National Government Ethics Summit. The Summit was a series of events in the Washington, D.C. area that brought together leaders from the executive branch ethics community, representatives from the legislative and judicial branches, members of the press, advocates from good government groups, noted thinkers from academia, and officials from state and local governments.
The month-long series of events spanned seven nonconsecutive days of live sessions throughout September 2014. We streamed a number of the live sessions, as well as provided several virtual-only events. All virtual content was available for viewing by the general public.
As you can see, the numbers tell a story of success:
This event was made possible through the generous support of our partners, who have graciously provided meeting space: the Federal Housing Finance Agency, the National Institute on Aging at the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Health and Human Services, the Pension Benefit Guaranty Corporation, and the Transportation Security Administration.
