Whistleblowing Canada is delighted to join in alliance with Parrhesia, as we work collaboratively to achieve our shared goals and vision of building a community of practice nationally and internationally to improve:
- the practice of whistleblowing,
- the protection of whistleblowers and
- the promotion of the human rights of whistleblowers, by advancing education on the whistleblowing phenomenon through research and sharing the information publicly.
Ultimately, the knowledge gained will inform public policy and help transform societal and organizational cultures where honest disclosures are supported, respected, valued and rewarded, and misconduct and wrongdoing are appropriately addressed and sanctioned.
Parrhesia brings together under one roof, leading researchers, practitioners and others from around the world, many of whom have been working in this area for years. As Whistleblowing Canada continues its work to expand and enhance whistleblowing research and practice in Canada, this alliance and the sharing and exchange of knowledge and ideas it brings, will enrich that process. It is also indicative of a growing international movement that acknowledges the importance of whistleblowing to maintaining honest organizations, our democratic institutions and our democratic way of life. Whistleblowing Canada enthusiastically joins in this endeavor.
