The City Values Forum works to embed the principles of trust and integrity in the financial and business services sector and to improve business cultures and behaviours.
Formed in 2011 to deliver the recommendations of The Lord Mayor’s Initiative ‘Restoring Trust in the City’, the City Values Forum is constituted as an informal working group reporting to successive Lord Mayors in his or her year in office.
On behalf of The Lord Mayor of the City of London, the City Values Forum has three main priorities namely to:
Research issues of trust, integrity, values and culture in the financial and business services sector
Develop, produce and give free access to best practice guidance, practical resource materials and training programmes to help Boards, executive management and individuals to encourage and embed the highest standards of behaviour in their businesses
Promote and disseminate the benefits of best practice and provide an open forum for the exchange of views on issues related to trust, integrity, values and culture in business through meetings, seminars, conferences and symposia
Membership of the Forum is by invitation and seeks to be representative of the business sectors and professions which make up the wider City business community, including organisations and individuals with specific skills and experience.
The members, who are unpaid volunteers, carry out the leadership and co-ordination of our work which is undertaken with specialist partner organisations and independently funded by sponsorship raised specifically for the programme.
