The appearance of impropriety is one of the hardest compliance challenges to combat. Regarding gifts and hospitality, even modest tokens could cause problems if given at the incorrect time or to the wrong person. Gifts given to public officials could even cause significant regulatory breaches as laws differ worldwide.

As the United States Supreme Court has demonstrated, with some justices receiving all manner of bribes in exchange for favourable rulings, the appearance of impropriety can cause severe reputational damage, even if no rules were technically broken.

With new EU rules on public sector gifts and hospitality on their way and updates to bribery laws in Canada and the US, now is a vital time to refresh your bribery policies and think about having an automated solution to track who’s giving and getting what at your organisation.

In this webinar, we discuss:

  • Gifts and hospitality cases from around the world, including the storm over gifts to US justices
  • New EU regulations on gifts and hospitality for public officials
  • Key corporate bribery cases linked to improper gifts and hospitality
  • Why G&H registers should track gifts given, as well as received
  • Best practice in designing your G&H register

Watch the on-demand webinar and understand the importance of tracking who’s giving and getting what at your organisation.

People are multi-dimensional in their identities and may identify with several different marginalised or minority groups at the same time. These overlapping identities can result in multiple and intersecting forms of bias, discrimination and disadvantage, both in the workplace and in wider society.

Intersectionality provides a framework for considering our different identities and experiences in order to understand the complexity of biases and prejudices that people can face and take steps to address any resulting inequality or discrimination.

In this webinar, we drew on expert insight, ‘lived experience’ interviews and original drama to look at how an intersectional approach can support inclusion and help to achieve more equitable outcomes.

The webinar covered:

  • What we mean by ‘intersectionality’
  • How our intersecting identities can overlap to create privilege or disadvantage
  • Why taking an intersectional approach is key to more effective inclusion
  • The importance of collecting and analysing data
  • How to put an intersectional approach into practice
