What is an ethics champion? The ethics champion is different to the ethics manager, ethics officer or ethics ambassador. This person is a senior leader in the organisation who provides the initial impetus for ethics and ensures that ethics initiatives maintain momentum. The ethics champion is prepared to be the “voice” of the ethics cause in senior decision-making. The workshop covers key ethics concepts and especially the relationship between ethics and governance. Prof Leon van Vuuren and Fatima Rawat team up to present an integrated programme covering material relevant to the public and private sectors.

In this one-day course, we will explain the factors deterring employees from blowing the whistle on unethical behaviour, and how the organisation can create a culture in which employees feel safe to report.
