Tell everyone a little about yourself and what you hope to gain from the Global Ethics Network.
As a Carnegie New Leader for Ethics in International Affairs, I hope to explore how technology and globalization impact business ethics. As a U.S. diplomat I worked in 26 countries, served at the U.S. Mission to the United Nations, and worked in the Office of the Director of National Intelligence. In the private sector, I have worked as a management consultant at McKinsey & Company, founded a real estate venture in New Haven, and worked in strategy at ArcelorMittal, the world's biggest steel company.
