The Global Compact Network Australia, in collaboration with Allens, invites you to the 5th Australian Dialogue on Bribery and Corruption. This year’s Dialogue, held virtually, will focus on Maintaining Integrity in Times of Crisis.
The global pandemic and accompanying economic crisis pose numerous challenges for governments and businesses. Corruption can both arise and be enhanced during times of crisis and can severely undermine human rights. However, the integration of a risk culture and a rights-based approach to business provides significant opportunities to break down silos and nurture a corporate culture that empowers employees and promotes ethical and responsible business practices.
Discussions will explore the intersection between corruption and human rights and draw in the complexities of navigating a global pandemic like COVID-19. It will be an opportunity for participants to understand how governance, risk, compliance and sustainability experts can work together to tackle these complex issues and stay ahead of this rapidly changing landscape.
To facilitate understanding, you will hear global and national business leaders and government representatives discuss the adjustments needed to strengthen anti-bribery and corruption systems and the questions we should be asking as we apply a human rights lens in times of crisis. This will include the opportunity to see firsthand the new Bribery Prevention Hub that provides a crucial tool for businesses to navigate the complexities of bribery and corruption.
This Dialogue, and the subsequent business-only workshop, aims to equip participants with the necessary tools to respond to and act on the challenges and opportunities to maintain integrity in times of crisis.
The event will be held under Chatham House rule.
We hope you will join us for this important and timely discussion. If you have any questions please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can access the agenda here.
