Speeding through 2022….

We are please to announce a number of education sessions for the next quarter. Please find the details contained in this newsletter. There are a number of other exciting events planned and more news from the chapter, details to follow shortly.




A lunchtime session with Jane Arnott

Organisational conditions that give rise to moral injury violate our sense of justice, which according to some social science theories is hardwired into our brains. This means that perceptions of justice (or injustice) in the workplace have profound effects on employees. When people feel subjected to unfair or undignified conditions, they’re four times more likely to act with self-interest and dishonesty.

Join us for a lunch-time session with Jane Arnott, Director: The Ethics Conversation


The session will cover:

  • The benefits of embedding an ethical culture and why this is relevant to risk
  • Demonstrating ethical leadership
  • Enabling a speak up culture
