Too often the only thing we hear about whistleblowers is that they’re treated badly. On World Whistleblower Day, we held this webinar with Azeem Rafiq to celebrate the positive achievements of whistleblowers and highlight how they help make the world a better place.
On our panel were:
Azeem Rafiq – anti-racism campaigner and ex-professional cricketer who spoke about his experience speaking up about racism in cricket, the positive impact it had and the victimisation he faced.
Georgina Charlton BSc MBA – former #NHS Freedom to Speak Up Guardian who spoke on practical steps to take to protect whistleblowers in the NHS and elsewhere
Nicola Rabson – Employment Law Partner for Linklaters, who spoke about how employers can create a whistleblowing culture that prevents victimisation
Mark Steward – Financial Conduct Authority Executive Director of Enforcement and Market Oversight, who talked about the regulator’s view on the dangers of leaving victimisation of whistleblowers
