Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.

The Great Women in Compliance Podcast introduces another two-part series this week, featuring Sonia Zeledon of The Hershey Company.  Sonia shares the philosophy of the Company: “Doing well by doing good” which seems like a dream environment for a Compliance Officer to walk into and Sonia shares how to not let such a front foot position lead to complacency.

Sonia discusses the company’s supplier code of conduct and how it’s at the heart of the company’s supply chain Compliance program.  She also canvasses the intersection between privacy and compliance in her role and how the show had to go on during COVID-19.  She also draws on her previous experience specializing in national security and shares with us some of the considerations when working in a Compliance function which must prioritize national security risk.

Lisa and Mary are currently busy working on the Great Women in Compliance book with Corporate Compliance Insights.  One of the most enjoyable aspects of publishing the book is planning the launch party.  The team is looking forward to sharing the details with their audience shortly and hopes that you all will be able to attend and raise a glass to toast all of the wonderful Great Women in Compliance that you know, starting with yourselves.  Watch this space for further details!
