Knowledge Partner Sessions - Auditorium


(Auditorium) Conscious efforts to enhance inclusion, diversity and gender equality in the workplace have been found to improve business integrity in various ways, including fewer instances of misconduct and stronger governance structures. The reverse is true as well – greater integrity, transparency and accountability in the private sector frequently boosts inclusion, diversity and gender equality in the workplace. Nonetheless, the gender dimensions of business integrity remain insufficiently understood and are rarely integrated into corporate compliance frameworks. So, how can compliance and integrity leaders incorporate a gender perspective into their work? And how can integrity contribute to fostering a healthy company culture that reduces harassment and promotes mental wellbeing in the workplace? This session will discuss the power of gender equality, diversity and inclusion – particularly among business leaders – to strengthen corporate governance and foster a culture of integrity beyond compliance.
