“It’s a compliment for Lipscomb they have asked us to be a part of this,” Stevens said. “It’s a very prestigious honor. The weekly program focuses on leaders of national stature, and I am honored to be part of that group and honored for Lipscomb to be involved in a way that brings national and international attention to the university.”
Turney Stevens & The Dean Institute
Stevens, a long-time Nashville entrepreneur who served as CEO of Harpeth Companies, founder of Nashville! Magazine and president of Rodgers Capital Corporation, will discuss the work of the Dean Institute for Corporate Governance and Integrity which was established at Lipscomb in 2008.
Stevens is expected to discuss the work of the institute to promote business cultures of integrity and recent issues regarding business ethics.
As the founder of the Dean Institute, Stevens has created a national forum for integrating best practices in governance with integrity and faith to benefit public and private company executives, board members and other top-tier corporate leaders. The institute seeks to address the root issues at play, namely, how character and integrity inform the decisions, actions, culture and performance of corporations.
Stevens has been honored for his efforts by being named one of 2009’s “Most Influential People in Business Ethics” by the Ethisphere Institute, a leading international think-tank dedicated to the advancement of best practices in business ethics. Stevens was nominated in the category of thought leadership -- individuals “who conceive of new approaches or otherwise materially contribute to the field of business ethics theory in a way that could be easily applied by corporate leaders.”
