The Week of Integrity is an annual multi-stakeholder initiative around the international UN Anti-Corruption Day on 9 December. Public and private sector stakeholders, academics and NGOs join forces to raise awareness of the importance of ethical behavior. We create momentum and show that ethical behavior is everyone’s responsibility. The Week of Integrity will contribute to the debate about what ethical behavior means in practice, for organizations and for individuals.
Year-round sharing, learning, innovating
The Week of Integrity is not limited to the month of December. As a matter of fact, it is a year-round initiative, bringing together partners, promoting innovative thinking and knowledge sharing. In the Netherlands where the initiative originates from, there are currently some 90 partner organizations that meet year-round in inspiring knowledge sharing sessions and round tables.
