YLAI for Integrity: Integrity Starts With Me

Transparency and good governance are fundamental to society and impact everything from management of resources to economic growth to trust in government. A lack of transparency can prevent a community and country from reaching their full potential. Upholding these fundamentals is a sign of true integrity, for individuals and businesses. As part of our commitment to fostering positive change and uplifting communities, the YLAI Network is uniting for integrity for transparency and good governance through #YLAI For Integrity: Integrity Starts With Me.

#YLAI For Integrity is an initiative to raise awareness about the social, economic and political benefits of transparency. This initiative will examine the social, economic and political benefits of transparency and good governance and ways that individuals can maintain integrity by identifying and eliminate corruption.

Every action you take, big or small, can make a difference in your society because integrity starts with you.

There are many ways to participate:

What’s the harm? Learn about how a lack of integrity can affect your community. Test your knowledge in a scenario (or all five!).
