New Links and More to Come

As promised, we have begun to add links to the blog. In the sidebar, you will now find a new section called Compliance and Ethics Links. In this section, we have added a few links to compliance and ethics organizations, publications, and news sources. In the future, we will add other sections, such as compliance and ethics job postings, and compliance and ethics academic programs and certifications. You can also expect another link section for blogs we have found and other miscellaneous links. We will post about those additions when they are up. The original link section will include links for ordering Working for Integrity and for publicity.

For now, each of the new links is listed below, along with a brief explanation.

Needless to say, we do not check these sites daily (especially the blogs), so some may become outdated. If you spot a dead link, please email us (Joe Murphy & Josh Leet).
We also welcome your suggested links and other resources.

We do not necessarily agree with everything posted at these links/blogs.
Use them at your own discretion.
