Coalition for Integrity Hosts Virtual 2020 Integrity Awards

Posted on by Alex Amico

On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, the Coalition for Integrity held our Annual Integrity Awards Ceremony. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s ceremony was held in a virtual format instead of the usual in-person dinner.

We were proud to present Dr. Anthony Fauci with the 2020 Integrity Award for exemplifying honesty and transparency with the American public in his efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The public needs to hear the truth as it is, rather than as they might want it to be,” said Dr. Fauci in his remarks. “Over time, truth-telling builds credibility, and credibility is essential to effective leadership.”

Procter & Gamble was the recipient of this year’s Corporate Leadership Award for its commitment to corporate anti-corruption compliance and social responsibility. We were pleased to have Deborah Majoras, Chief Legal Officer and Secretary of Procter & Gamble, accept the award.

As we celebrate our awardees, we recognize that our fight is not limited to individual efforts. Only together can we achieve our full potential of eliminating corruption. At this time of international crisis, our fight against corruption is more important than ever. Above all we are grateful to all those who attended to show their support for the awardees and for our cause of combating corruption and raising integrity standards in the public and private sector.

Special thanks to our 2020 Integrity Awards Dinner sponsors – we are grateful for your support.

Posted on by admin

Our Board Chair, Alan Larson using his deep foreign service experience and his services as both Ambassador to the OECD and Under Secretary of State for economic, business and agricultural affairs has contributed an excellent article to the Foreign Service Journal.

In the article he explains how  corruption is a deadly virus that can infect any nation.
