In each country where the Alliance for Integrity is active, a local multi-stakeholder Advisory Group has been established. The Advisory Group is assigned with consultative tasks on the country level.
Each Advisory Group serves as a sounding board for the network in the respective region. Its primary role is to provide direction and guidance to the initiative. The body consists of supporters, thought leaders, practitioners, and experts who steer the Alliance for Integrity towards the desired goal of promoting responsible and clean business in the respective region. Meetings take place several times a year.
More details regarding the local Advisory Groups are available on the individual country profile pages.
