“Australia needs more whistle-blowers. Democracy needs more whistle-blowers and a think tank like the Australia Institute needs more whistle-blowers.” Ben Oquist, Executive Director of the Australia Institute.
In this final episode we look at how blowing the whistle is just the tip of the iceberg and the role that civil society can play in promoting a culture that not only encourages but supports whistle-blowers like Maryanne Slattery, so that all their knowledge and expertise is not lost.
