Although corporate social responsibility makes good business sense, it often takes leaders with courage to create an environment that values ethical decision making. Dolores Barclay, an award-winning journalist, author, producer, and professor, will share the importance of navigating business with honesty and principled leadership in a session titled, “Leading with Integrity and Purpose to Create a Culture that Inspires a Commitment to Doing the Right Thing,” at American Spa’s Women in Wellness Leadership Conference on March 12 at Edison Ballroom in New York City.

Barclay will draw on her years of experience as an AP investigative reporter and editor covering city hall, federal and criminal courts, and the culture beat. An advocate for truth in journalism and in our daily lives, she’ll reveal insightful advice on becoming a leader who inspires respect and loyalty.

In addition to serving as former National Writer and Arts editor of The Associated Press, Barclay sits on the Advisory Board of City University Center for the Arts. She also worked on the investigative series, “Torn from the Land,” which was awarded the Aronson Prize for Social Justice Journalism, the APME Enterprise Award, and the Griot Award of the New York Association of Black Journalists. It was also submitted for a Pulitzer Prize.
