Why Unashamedly Ethical?
Unashamedly Ethical is a global movement of individuals and organisations guided by a founding vision to transform society by taking a stand for ethics, values and clean living.
The goal of this movement is to develop an unashamedly ethical culture among this generation of leaders and the next.
The Unashamedly Ethical campaign is based on 3 central pillars:
- Commitment: By signing an Unashamedly Ethical commitment form, a person or organisation publicly states that it is taking a stand for ethics, values and clean living.
- Network: Signatories become part of the Unashamedly Ethical community, opening a broad base of networking opportunities, and are added to a directory on the Unashamedly website and mobile app where valuable business and individual connections are made.
- Accountability: The network is a powerful conduit for relational accountability, trust and unity. In the business context all signatories are held accountable to the Unashamedly Ethical code of ethics by an independent ombudsman, who handles written submissions and complaints to ensure standards are maintained.
The strategy is based on a plan to identify, train, equip and release ambassadors and coordinators that are unashamedly ethical.
Interested parties are encouraged to establish a team or committee and create a local Unashamedly Ethical presence that will eventually develop into a self-sustained regional hub that will be responsible for catalytic events and gatherings in their region.
Activities facilitated by the movement include a range of focused dialogues, campaigns, events, training & mentorship.
While the movement was birthed in South Africa in 2010, and activities were concentrated mainly within the borders of that nation, the momentum has extended to the wider continent of Africa resulting in a footprint in 35 of the 54 African nations. Unashamedly Ethical is currently active in more than 135 nations worldwide.
