WASHINGTON DC – October 31, 2019 – The Center for Responsible Enterprise And Trade (CREATe.org) today announces a new grant program designed to fund projects that advance CREATe.org’s approach of providing practical resources to educate organizations about leading practices for managing risk and improving governance and compliance.
Organizations or individuals interested in learning more can review the Request for Proposal (RFP) at www.CREATe.org/RFP. CREATe.org is allocating approximately $400,000 for this initiative. This amount will be divided across several grants to organizations. Written proposals are due to CREATe.org by midnight December 4, 2019.
Proposed projects should concentrate on ethics, compliance, corporate governance and/or risk management on one or more of the topics of CREATe.org’s areas of focus: anti-corruption (including the ISO 37001 Anti-Bribery Management Systems Standard); cybersecurity; intellectual property (IP) and trade secret protection; or in emerging risk areas (e.g., managing trade (sanction) compliance, the ethics and responsibilities of Artificial Intelligence).
“CREATe.org was founded on the principle that companies have the power to improve business integrity across corporate ecosystems, and ideally, to communities at large. We have focused our efforts on providing practical ways to help drive this change,” stated Pamela Passman, President and CEO of CREATe.org. “We are excited to extend the mission of CREATe.org through this initiative.”
Projects can take the shape of thought leadership, quantitative research, tools development, or the development of other resources. Regardless of the format, the project should provide practical tools, resources or information that will help companies advance leading practices on CREATe.org’s mission areas. These projects should also include ways to disseminate and broadly share these leading practices with the global business community.
