The Greater Houston Business Ethics Roundtable (GHBER) is a voluntary professional organization dedicated to promoting ethical business practices and serving as a forum for the exchange of information and strategies regarding implementation, administration and compliance of ethical business conduct programs.
GHBER was founded over 20 years ago at the University of Houston's C. T. Bauer College of Business, with the leadership of Dr. Bette Ann Stead, to provide a level playing field for companies and organizations to discuss problems and share best practices.
