Addressing ethics and compliance in athletics

Addressing ethics and compliance in athletics

Join Jonathan Brown, Partner, and Alecia Futerman, Associate Director, from Control Risks' forensics team for a discussion with Niels Lindholm, who became first Ethical Compliance Officer to join World Athletics (formerly the IAAF) in 2018. They discuss the wide-ranging reforms which were put in place at World Athletics to combat corruption risk at the organisation, following a well-publicised scandal that emerged earlier in the decade. Niels provides us with insight into World Athletics’ journey and discusses how compliance professionals and governance and integrity programmes can work together to build trust in a global sports organisation.
