October 11: Fighting Corruption in Sport: The Transparency International Corruption in Sports Initiative - Sport is a multi-billion dollar industry and a recipient of significant public funds. Practiced and enjoyed by billions of people, it is a global symbol of fair play. Corruption, however, poses a major threat to sports competition worldwide. Transparency International’s Corruption in Sport Initiative works to keep sports clean by connecting the sports community to the wider movement against corruption. On October 11, join CAPI for a discussion about the TI Initiative and how to uphold integrity in sports.
October 28: Changing Organization Cultures: Red Flags of Corruption and Lessons on Instilling Integrity - Creating a culture of integrity and transparency requires more than a simple rule change.

What are the red flags of a corrupt organizational culture that managers should keep in mind? How can agencies promote a transparent and accountable workplace? What are cost-effective ways to instill ethical behavior and protect against waste, fraud, and abuse? Join CAPI for a half-day conference with industry leaders from the public and private sectors to discuss practical lessons for promoting integrity in organizational cultures. Free CLE may be available to non-transitional New York State attorneys. RSVP here.
