Billions of people are affected by corruption everyday

Learn how to recognize corruption using our library while joining a global community of ethically-minded individuals, gaining access to ethical employers, and supporting ethical brands that reward you based on your level.
Who are we?
IEJL creates a culture of ethical business practices among its target demographic of the 18 to 30-year-old population. We follow a proven method of establishing a culture. It is the same method used by churches, Boy/Girl Scouts, and other service organizations. We use a gamified rewards-based system of education, fellowship, and communication to achieve our goal. Our educational programs, employment opportunities, Merchant discounts, Chapter locations, and communication platforms are all accessible online.
What is Corruption?
Ethics cover a very broad range of issues, many are based on family or religious values. We do not get involved in those issues. Our mission is to abate corruption and promote ethical business practices. We define ethical business practices as non-corrupt practices. Corruption is defined as the abuse of power for personal gain or gain for a few. In many companies and governments, corruption has become a culture. The consequences ripple out and have devastating effects on our communities, our environment, and our future.
corruption has become widespread
The perils of corruption are not only debilitating to a country’s GDP, but it robs citizens of the ability to live a prosperous life. The corruption perception index of 2018 illustrates how corruption remains cancerous around the world. Corruption is everywhere. According to the corruption perception index of 2018, more than 120 countries and territories out of 180 ranked 50 or lower out of 100 on a scale that indicates the perceived level of corruption, where 0 is highly corrupt and 100 is clean. Unfortunately, these statistics have remained relatively static for years.
We run many programs to achieve our goal.
