Biography
Through his practical, engaging and entertaining virtual and in-person presentations on ethical leadership, Forbes Contributor Bruce Weinstein, The Ethics Guy®, shows organizations how everyone benefits from honest, accountable behavior.

He is the CEO of the Institute for High-Character Leadership and writes a leadership column for Forbes magazine online. Bruce has discussed ethical leadership over 200 times on national and international broadcast and cable television news programs and is the author of the books "Ethical Intelligence," "The Good Ones: Ten Crucial Qualities of High-Character Employees," and for tweens and teens, "Is It Still Cheating If I Don't Get Caught?"

Société Generale, Dublin-based construction company CRH, Northrop Grumman, the National Football League, RS&H, the Association of College and University Auditors, the National Association of College and University Business Officers, the Investment Management Consultants Association, Bristol Bay Native Corporation, Marathon Petroleum Corporation, Allstate Insurance, Astellas Pharma, the Western Australian Local Government Association and The Home Depot have been among Bruce’s many clients.

Bruce received his B.A. in philosophy from Swarthmore College and an M.A. and Ph.D. in philosophy with a concentration in bioethics from Georgetown University and the Kennedy Institute of Ethics. The W. K. Kellogg Foundation in Battle Creek, Michigan awarded Bruce a National Fellowship in Leadership Development.

He lives in New York City with his wife Kristen Bancroft, who is a compliance professional in the financial services industry. To relax Bruce enjoys playing music (guitar, harmonica, and drums), visiting national parks with his wife, and trying to figure out the plot of "The Godfather."
