overview

The 3rd Australian National Whistleblowing Symposium a virtual event this year will reflect back on how Whistleblowing has been significantly highlighted throughout the world in an unprecedented way with Covid-19.

Never has it been more important to highlight why whistleblowers must be protected and encouraged to speak up.

From Wuhan to Timor Leste we have cases that illustrate why we must have national and international laws, policies and procedures in place to protect those willing to speak up to protect us from harms.
