Personal Integrity Statement

I acknowledge that my career and my life must have a purpose greater than serving myself. My goal will be to serve the greater good by bringing together people and resources to create value that no single individual can build alone. Therefore I will seek a course that enhances the value I and others can create for society over the long term. As I reconcile the interests of different constituencies, I will face difficult choices.

Therefore I promise:

  • I will act with utmost integrity and pursue my work in an honest and ethical manner.
  • I will obey the letter and spirit of the law.
  • I will take responsibility for my actions and consider the effects on others.
  • I will strive to create a sustainable economic and social environment.
  • I will be accountable to myself and to my peers for living by this oath.

This oath I make freely, and upon my honor.
