2002 – OCEG Founded
OCEG was founded in the wake of the “dot com bust” and notable corporate failures such as Enron, Worldcom, and Healthsouth. Our initial mission was to improve corporate compliance and ethics, and so we were named the Open Compliance and Ethics Group. Very rapidly, our members found conversations expanding beyond compliance and ethics — moving into performance management, risk management, governance, and assurance. So now, we simply go by OCEG.
