BEN-Africa was formed on the equator in the heart of Africa in 1999. The founding conviction of BEN-Africa is that by bringing together Africans who share an interest in business ethics, business ethics will be expanded on the African continent. We believe that through interaction, both theoretical knowledge and practical skill in managing ethics will be enhanced.
Our experience since 1999 has substantiated this conviction. BEN-Africa currently has members in 25 African countries. National chapters have been established in Botswana, Kenya, Nigeria, Tanzania, Cameroon and Ethiopia. A number of other countries are in the process of establishing similar national structures of BEN-Africa.
BEN-Africa strengthens the commitment and competence of Africans to do business with moral integrity by facilitating interaction between academics and practitioners who share an interest in business ethics.
