Blue graphic with YLAI logo, with Haitian man smiling in business suitThe economy flourishes when businesses, entrepreneurs, and young professionals are given space to be innovative and competitive—ethical behavior in the workplace helps to make this possible. On the contrary, unethical behavior impacts countries around the world, contributing to governmental instability, eroding trust, stifled commerce, and a lack of diversity in the workplace.

The United Nations estimates that annually $1 trillion USD is paid in bribes with an additional $2.6 trillion USD stolen through corruption. A lack of transparency and corruption threatens the economy on a global scale, discouraging investment and trade, promoting inequality in hiring, and inhibiting prosperity.
