In 2008, the Greater Omaha Alliance for Business Ethics was legally established, as a stand-alone not-for-profit entity. The Alliance has three founding partners, the Heider College of Business, Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce, and the BBB Midwest Plains. Additionally, the Alliance is made up of Trustees around Omaha who act as a guild of business leaders who are ambassadors, supporters, and advisors of the Alliance’s mission. Dr. Bev led the Alliance for over 12 years as Executive Director and CEO building a full range of community programs, ethics-based products services, as well as the Alliance’s premier conference: EthicSpace.
Everything the Alliance does promotes an environment where the discussion and practice of ethics are encouraged and expected in our local community. Because business leaders trust the Alliance, it is able to create forums to have conversations that no one else in the community can have. The Alliance's brand of ethics education is impartial, research-based, and respectful.
