NWC Executive Director Siri Nelson to Present at USAID Summit for Democracy

WASHINGTON, D.C. | December 6, 2021 — Tomorrow, National Whistleblower Center (NWC)’s Executive Director, Siri Nelson, will be presenting at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) event All Hands on Deck: Innovating Together to Combat Transnational Corruption. This conversation is part of USAID’s Summit for Democracy, and the agency will announce a new USAID Grand Challenge. NWC was a Grand Prize winner of the agency’s Crime Tech Challenge and is proud to participate in this intriguing event.

At the event, Nelson will be discussing the value of innovative approaches to whistleblower programs in the fight against transnational corruption, and the success of these approaches for climate and wildlife whistleblowers worldwide. Whistleblowers are instrumental to successful anti-corruption efforts, and NWC’s work with U.S whistleblower programs serves as a model to lift whistleblowers around the globe.

Speakers include USAID Administrator Samantha Power; representatives from Google, Amazon, and Mastercard; International Development Ministers from Sweden and Norway; and many others. More information can be found at the Summit for Democracy website.
