It is too easy to find stories of unethical leadership wherever you are in the globe. Just turn on the news or open up social media, and you'll notice political leaders being accused of fraud, indecent behaviour, or the instigation of war.

This snapshot outlines the key insights from the event, and provides a platform to launch the Washington Ethical Leadership Summit, a new annual catalyst for making a difference to ethical leading. By looking at topics such as barriers and enablers to ethical leading and strategies for ethical leading, this snapshot offers insights into a variety of perspectives surrounding ethical and unethical leadership.
