Kurzbeschreibung: A requirement to speak up, or to blow the whistle, is part of the ethical, regulatory or professional responsibility of an actuary in most countries. This can cause situations where an actuary can feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. If they blow the whistle, they can face significant personal hardship. And if they fail to blow the whistle, they can face professional sanction. Preparation and education are essential for actuaries so that they have the wherewithal to both protect their career and, if necessary, be able to speak-up effectively to meet their professional responsibilities, rather than becoming a needless martyr.
The purpose of this web session is to prepare actuaries for situations where they might need to speak up or blow the whistle.
A natural part of professional actuarial work is dealing with conflicts and dilemmas. The web session is a mixture of theory, practical examples and lessons from others who have blown the whistle.
The web session will include breakout sessions to discuss materials covered and to enable participants to share their own experiences.
