Anticorruption Deep Dive: The Gender Dimensions of Business Integrity
Gender diversity in the workplace has been found to improve business integrity in various ways – fewer instances of misconduct, fewer fines, stronger governance structures, increased transparency, and clearer anti-corruption programs and policies. The reverse is true as well – greater integrity, transparency and accountability in the private sector frequently boosts gender diversity and equity in the workplace. Nonetheless, the gender dimensions of business integrity remain insufficiently understood and infrequently integrated into corporate compliance frameworks.
In this next deep dive of the UN Global Compact's Webinar Series on Business Integrity, we will discuss how companies can capitalize on the mutually reinforcing relationship between gender equity and business integrity.
During this session you will learn from experts and practitioners on:
- How diversity, inclusion and equity strengthen business integrity
- How business integrity fosters a diverse, inclusive and equitable workplace
- How to perform gender-sensitive situation analyses
- The common characteristics of gender-responsive ethics and integrity programs
- The challenges and opportunities for small and medium-sized enterprises when addressing the gender dimensions of business integrity
