We invite you to spend Anti-Corruption Week 2022 with the UN Global Compact Network Ukraine!
On December 5-9, the UN Global Compact Network Ukraine will hold the third Anti-Corruption Week, during which two high-level events will be held with the participation of representatives of Ukrainian businesses, government, non-governmental organizations, and international speakers. During the Week, we will present “Manual: lessons of business integrity during the war”.
As a result of Russia’s full-scale invasion of Ukraine, businesses faced additional challenges, both legislative and ethical. This year, the key theme of the Anti-Corruption Week will be strengthening accountability, honesty, and transparency of business in conditions of uncertainty. To raise awareness of corruption risks and promote transparency in doing business in today’s Ukrainian business environment, discussions will focus on best practices in compliance risk management, the organization of compliance units, new control tools in martial law, and innovations in this area.
