Governance, Risk Management, Compliance, and Ethics (GRCE)

Governance, Risk Management, Compliance, and Ethics (GRCE)

GRCEIn today’s complex and demanding operating environment, an organization must be able to exploit the synergies coming from an inter-disciplinary approach so that stakeholders ever-increasing expectations can be met.

Few disciplines complement each other as effectively as governance and risk management – particularly when applied enterprise wide. Providing additional substance to this dynamic partnering is the interaction between compliance and ethics that ensures not only the required things get done, but also for the right reasons too.

It is becoming increasingly clear that stakeholders now expect everybody in an organization to positively contribute to the achievement of goals and objectives. As a result, capabilities that may have been confined to particular functions or levels in the hierarchy are now expected to be applied across the whole organization and at all levels.

EIMF is organizing a two-day workshop that will take the respective ‘silos’ of governance, risk management, and bring them together to form a comprehensive framework for achieving enhanced organizational conformance and performance. For further details, please visit
