Under the leadership of President and CEO Lisa Wardell, Adtalem has notably increased female and multicultural representation on its Board of Directors since 2016. We believe diverse and independent Directors create stronger practices and outcomes for the company.
Lisa Wardell is an advocate for increasing the number of women and minorities in corporate leadership positions, and in 2018 became a signatory with CEO Action for Diversity & Inclusion.
We take seriously the custody of student and employee data, and employ strong governance practices regarding data security. For example, Adtalem’s Enterprise Information Security Framework policy and Information Governance and Security procedures are modeled on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) 800-53 policy framework.
We are committed to the highest standards of corporate conduct in the operation of our business. Our code of business conduct sets professional standards for how we operate. Adtalem employees receive training on the code of business conduct to enhance understanding of these directives. All Adtalem employees are required to review and acknowledge the code of conduct during onboarding. Additionally, all employees are required to complete a web based harassment training course.
Adtalem’s Cyber Security team provides regular reports to the Board’s Audit and Finance Committee, which is tasked with compliance oversight. This committee includes a Director who has obtained a Certificate in Cybersecurity Oversight from the Software Engineering Institute of Carnegie Mellon University, a certificate program in partnership with the National Association of Corporate Directors (NACD).
