The Alliance for Integrity has delivered a lecture at this year’s edition of the Ghana Institution of Engineering (GhIE)’s Annual “Ethics and Leadership” Lecture Series. The paper was on the theme “Engineering Ethics in Practice: Complementing Technical Skills with Ethical Conduct for Professional Proficiency” and was delivered on behalf of the Alliance for Integrity by Abraham Agbozo, Compliance Counsel for Newmont Ghana Gold Limited and trainer for Alliance for Integrity’s Compliance Training for Businesses.
