Whistleblowing and the Media
February 23 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm
Whistleblowing is a phenomenon that is not going away. New whistleblower protection laws are being implemented in the EU and other countries. Many organizations are changing their practices to adapt, and to encourage whistleblower disclosures. While this is a step forward, experience tells us that there will still likely be external disclosures, to regulators, to political figures, and to the media. Whistleblower partners including advocacy groups, experienced lawyers, trade unions and activists can play a critical role in ensuring disclosures are effective, and in protecting the whistleblower.
The Whitaker Institute presents “Whistleblowing and the Media”, one of a three-part webinar series “External partners: When disclosures are made outside the organization” run in conjunction with Cork University Business School, Maynooth University and the whistleblowingimpact.org team. We welcome four speakers from the field of Journalism to speak about their experiences of working with whistleblowing disclosures, and the best practices, challenges and lessons learned.
