It’s been a long time since Hubby and I joined a fun run! This coming December a historic running event for integrity will takes off. Integrity for me is being honest even when no one is looking. Nowadays, this is a really big issue in our country!
With the goal of making integrity everyone’s concern and part of daily life, the Integrity Initiative – spearheaded by the Makati Business Club, the European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP), the American Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (AMCHAM), the Management Association of the Philippines (MAP), and Financial Executives of the Philippines (Finex)- is staging a historic run on December 12, 2015 at the CCP Complex, Pasay City.
Dubbed “I RUN for Integrity: I am Part of the Solution,” the event calls on all sectors of society to participate in this important step towards building a culture of integrity in the Philippines. It is expected to bring together 5,000 representatives and runners from government, business, youth, civil society, academe, church, and media towards the common goal of being part of the solution in fighting corruption.
Additionally, the Integrity Initiative has rolled-out a unified code of conduct in 2012, and the basic guidelines for ethical business behavior; introduced an online self-assessment tool to all signatories, which can be used to evaluate the areas for improvement in the integrity system within their organization; developed a validation process to validate the ratings from the self-assessment tool and will soon pilot a certification process for businesses.
“While the Integrity Initiative has already accomplished notable milestones, there’s still a lot that needs to be done. One of which is to encourage more engagement from individuals, especially the youth, to act with and uphold the value of integrity. This is why the theme of this year’s run is ‘I RUN for Integrity: I am part of the solution.’ The individual acts of integrity are sure to deliver remarkable collective result in the long run. Participating in the run event is a symbolic gesture of pledging to act with integrity,” said Henry Schumacher, Vice President of ECCP and the Integrity Initiative, Inc. “We expect this event to be another show of force by Filipinos from all walks of life who want to finish victorious over our fight with corruption. With this event, we seek to make integrity everyone’s mission,” Schumacher added.
