"The American Whistleblower Tour: Essential Voices for Accountability" stops at the School of Social Work as part of the school's First Annual Social Justice Week, Oct. 17-21.
The tour stop will be highlighted by an open-forum interview focused on ethics, social justice and the whistleblowing experience. Featured guests include Director of the American Whistleblower Tour Dana Gold and food safety whistleblower Kenneth Kendrick.
The American Whistleblower Tour is a new campaign organized by the Government Accountability Project, which seeks to spotlight the vital role in our democracy that free speech on the job - whistleblowing - plays as an antidote to unethical and unsafe practices. Currently, there are at least ten other schools slated for tour stops during the 2011-2012 academic year.
