PORTLAND, Ore., August 16, 2022 – NAVEX, the leader in integrated risk and compliance management software, today announced its 2022 NAVEX Next Global Virtual Conference. The opening day of the conference will be webcast on September 29, 2022. This year’s opening keynote will feature former Olympian and the first female president of U.S. Soccer, Cindy Parlow Cone.  

The largest risk and compliance conference in the world—attracting nearly 7,000 registrants in 2021—NAVEX Next offers timely, relevant practical guidance and best practices for industry professionals across disciplines, including risk management, compliance, legal, human resources, ESG, audit and corporate training.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Culture Transformed.” This recognizes the critical role culture plays in building and sustaining effective ethics and compliance programs. As in the past, the conference will feature sessions on workplace culture, business risk, third-party/supply chain risk management, corporate responsibility and sustainability, and integrated risk management.

Culture Transformed

A three-time Olympian and National Soccer Hall of Fame inductee, Cone has overseen major shifts in U.S. Soccer’s priorities, taking meaningful action in diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging which emphasizes unity throughout the organization. Under her leadership, U.S. Soccer reached an historic collective bargaining agreement that achieved pay equity—including World Cup prize money—across all of U.S. Soccer; the first country to do so.

The closing keynote will be delivered by Rashmi Airan. A noted organizational behavior expert, she’ll discuss how organizations can create a culture focused on integrity, authenticity and accountability through leadership, diversity and inclusion. Airan will share her human performance methodology, technique and mindset that catalyses leadership, growth and stability in organizations.

Other conference sessions will include Amy Cravens, Research Manager for IDC’s Security and Trust Group responsible for the Governance, Risk, and Compliance Technology practice; Michael Volkov, CEO of The Volkov Law Group; Megan Torrance, CEO and founder of TorranceLearning; Ron Woerner, president and Chief Security Evangelist of Cyber-AAA, LLC; Cathy Kanzler, VP of Global Compliance Operations, Olympus Corporation, and many others.

The two-part conference begins Thursday, September 29th with sessions focused on global thought leadership, including Cone and Airan’s keynotes. Day two, webcast on Tuesday, October 11th, features sessions dedicated to transformative NAVEX One software solutions, featuring technology to build and advance successful governance, risk and compliance programs.
