Established in 2016, The Cary M. Maguire “Spirit of Ethics” Award was created to recognize companies that demonstrate and champion above-and-beyond ethical practices. This new level of recognition is named for Dallas businessman, philanthropist and longtime GDBEA supporter Cary Maguire.
“Our program would not be where it is without the support of Cary Maguire. He embodies the qualities that define principled behavior in business, public service and our personal lives. In honor of Mr. Maguire’s longtime commitment to and tireless advocacy for ethics, we established the Cary Maguire Spirit of Ethics Award.”
— Michael Webb, Chairman, Greater Dallas Business Ethics Award
Cary Maguire established The Maguire Center for Ethics & Public Responsibility at SMU in 1995. Since then the Center has supported student and faculty ethics-related education and activities, as well as outreach to community, private and public institutions.
