Integrity at Work Conference

Radisson Blu, Golden Lane, Dublin 8 - 28th September

The Integrity at Work (IAW) Conference is the first to bring together employers, legal practitioners, academics and civil society to discuss how to foster a culture of integrity within Irish workplaces.

The 2017 Conference will explore how law, policy and practice work together in helping employers understand what they need to do to help their staff speak up safely.

Among the questions the IAW Conference 2017 will seek to answer will include:

  • How do I encourage my staff to report concerns about wrongdoing?
  • What are best practices in writing whistleblowing policies and procedures?
  • What action should my organisation take after a disclosure has been made?
  • How do I stop bullying of staff who speak up?
  • What does the Protected Disclosures Act (PDA) mean for my organisation and me?

The IAW Conference will present employers, professionals and policy-makers with a unique opportunity to pose questions, share experiences and learn from their peers and international experts on whistleblowing and whistleblower protection.
