Parasites and Parastatals

TEI Ethics Talk:  Podcast

Collateral damage...and all that corporate jazz

In this thought-provoking podcast by Prof Leon van Vuuren, he shares how "war-talk" has infiltrated business jargon, its destructive influence on attempts to promote dignity, fairness, transparency and responsibility, and how to avoid falling into this trap.

Training programme

 
Managing Conflicts of Interest workshop webinar!
 
Herewith the final call for TEI Supporters and those involved in the governance and management of ethics in organisations, to register for our virtual "Managing Conflicts of Interest workshop" on 1 June 2021.

Conflicts of interest are probably the most talked-about ethical issue in South Africa, and elsewhere. If the previous President of the United States could display this level of ignorance about conflicts of interest, it stands to reason that uncertainty about the topic is omnipresent. There is equal haziness about how to manage conflicts once they have been identified and disclosed.

The purpose of this workshop is to equip each delegate with a focused and structured approach to managing conflicts of interest within their own organisations.


For more information, please contact Kgothatso Tshabalala at kgothatso@tei.org.za.
