Transparency International Sri Lanka (TISL) has been spearheading a campaign and awards programme to ‘name and fame’ honest public officials in Sri Lanka’s public service who have gone above and beyond the call of duty, working in the public interest, sometimes at great personal cost.
The Integrity Icon Awards programme conceptualized by Accountability Lab – a global organisation that seeks to support change-makers to develop and implement positive ideas for integrity in their communities – has been held annually in Sri Lanka since 2018 to great public acclaim. TISL is pleased to announce that nominations are now being accepted for Integrity Icon Sri Lanka (IISL) 2022/23, for the fifth consecutive year.
The Integrity Icon campaign seeks to recognise and encourage public officials who carry out their duty with integrity, standing up against corruption, withstanding external and internal pressures. Last year, Integrity Icon Sri Lanka was carried out as a special edition, recognizing COVID-19 frontline workers, under the theme “COVID Heroes”. This year, the programme is open to all in the public service sector of the country.
