Creating a “Speak Up” Culture – A Roadmap for Addressing Ethical Dilemmas and Fostering a Culture of Integrity

Creating a “Speak Up” Culture – A Roadmap for Addressing Ethical Dilemmas and Fostering a Culture of Integrity

Tuesday, 7 June 2022 | 1:00 PM ET (5:00 p.m. GMT)

As media headlines and news reports regularly highlight company scandals and governance failures, ethics must be at the heart of every business decision. Board members must set the proper tone and ensure the integrity of the CEO and executive members, but also of employees operating at all levels of the organization.


But how can the Board effectively evaluate the strength of an organization’s “culture of integrity” in practice? Does the board understand where and how the organization’s strategy can create ethical risks? Does a robust and efficient risk management process exist that can prevent, detect and mitigate such risks and manage situations when ethical lapses arise?


During this session Mr. Tassé will address the above and more as he discusses approaches for not only identifying potential ethical issues but more importantly, how to apply a systematic risk management and problem-solving solution to such issues that will integrate both organizational and human factors that form the true culture of any organization.


By the end of this session, attendees will be able to:

  • recognize human and organizational factors influencing decisions as well as ethical and non-ethical behaviours;
  • understand his/her role in relation to steps in the development and creation of a governance structure, a compliance process and policies enabling and fostering an ethical organizational culture;
  • understand his/her role in relation to the risk management process facilitating the prevention, detection and resolution of ethical problems in one’s organization by adopting a reflective approach comprising human and organizational aspects;
  • understand his/her role in relation to the required leadership inside an organization to ensure the good development, follow-up and continuous improvement of the risk management processes and ethical problems solving.
