About The Webinar

The recent spate of Covid-19 pandemic-related fraud and corruption highlights that there are still massive weaknesses in the system of checks and balances in organisations.
Join us at a live webcast hosted by the University of Johannesburg (UJ) as we tackle issues such as:
  • How can organisations, both in the public and private sector, improve the effectiveness of their existing anti-corruption tools? 
  • Are the preventative control guides sufficient to ensure procurement compliance?
  • How to ensure diligent practice of a robust corporate governance and whistleblowing mechanism? 
  • What are the priorities that are imperative for transforming SOE governance?
  • The role of boards in a crisis and the stakeholder-inclusive approach
  • Revisiting ethical and moral behaviours
  • Can we be confident that whistle-blowing processes are trusted by employees and will make an impact on the organisation?
  • Is the legal framework sufficient to protect whistle-blowers from the various risks they face when they make the bold decision to step out from the shadows?
