Integrity Forum - Whistling while they work 2

Public Sector Commission

Event outline

Networking & breakfast 8:30am | Forum 9:00am | Closing 10:30am

You are invited to join Mr Mal Wauchope AO, Public Sector Commissioner as he presents the Public Sector Commission’s Integrity Forum.

Our guest speaker is A J Brown, Professor of Public Policy & Law at Griffith University. Prof. Brown is the Project Leader of “Whistling While They Work 2” (WWTW2), a research project for which the Commission is also a partner agency.

Through the WWTW2 research, Prof. Brown and his team are exploring the efficacy of private and public organisations’ whistleblowing processes. Drawn from extensive surveys across Australia and New Zealand, in public and private sectors, the research is providing great insights, for example, into:

  • How ethical leadership styles influence managers’ support of staff who internally report wrongdoing
  • How individual and environmental factors influence official reporting of wrongdoing, and
  • Wrongdoing risks and the influence of supporting ethical cultures within organisations.

The WWTW2 work-in-progress results have broad application to all public authorities covered by the Public Interest Disclosure (PID) Act 2003 and for public officers responsible for managing misconduct under the Corruption, Crime and Misconduct Act 2003. 

Join us for what will be an interesting and interactive forum.

This FREE session is best suited for CEOs, PID Officers, Senior Officers, governance practitioners, managers and employees responsible for misconduct prevention in their public sector agency, local government, government trading entity and public university.

Any queries, please do not hesitate to contact the Advisory Line on 6552 8888.
