This July, I had the privilege to take part in the Integrity Leadership Course at the Central European University in Budapest. Being new to Integrity Action, the course was a fantastic opportunity to acquire in-depth knowledge of our approach on integrity, as well as to get to know new partners, colleagues and like-minded people coming from more than 25 countries. I came back home inspired by the people I met and their experience, and ready to roll up my sleeves and get to work.
