Young TI

Young TI, c'est une initiative qui donne une voix aux jeunes professionnels qui sont en début de carrière ou encore aux études. Les membres de Young TI-Belgium développent leurs propres projets autour des thèmes de la corruption et de l’intégrité, ciblés à leur propre génération (entre 20 et 35 ans d’âge). L’objectif est de sensibiliser leurs pairs actifs dans le gouvernement ou dans les sociétés du secteur public ou privé, aux effets néfastes de la corruption. Plus concrètement, le groupe s’engage dans des projets de recherche, l’organisation d’événements et de workshops, la réalisation de campagnes, etc.

C'est une collaboration avec un groupe de volontaires dynamiques ; des étudiants, des académiques, des jeunes professionnels ayant fait une première expérience dans les secteurs public ou privé.  L'initiative est ouverte à tous, votre background pourra être dans plusieurs domaines. Pour nous, ce qui compte le plus est que vous êtes passionné par notre cause et que vous avez envie de rejoindre Young TI-B. Le projet a démarré avec une session d’information le 29 septembre en 2015. Depuis, il y a régulièrement des soirées Young TI à partir de 18.30h qui ont lieu dans le bâtiment Mundo-J, rue de l’Industrie 10, 1000 Bruxelles.

Two recent proposals for Young TI members:

1. Louvain School of Management - Participation in Business Ethics and Compliance Management programme

One member of Young TI will participate in the 2nd edition of the Business Ethics and Compliance Management programme at the Louvain School of Management at a highly reduced fee.
This initiative was kindly offered by the Louvain School of Management to a young member of TI Belgium who was ready to take his/her career a step forward in business ethics and compliance management. Management of complex dilemma's and the implementation of effective cultures and programmes, is an actual and very interesting challenge for many businesses.
We are very pleased to announce that Paloma Labaig will participate in the programme with the TI scholarship.
