- Generation whY - 20140611 - Nomiki Konst

Join host, Andrew Tint as he highlights the issues facing Generation Y.

This week Generation whY is joined a third time by Nomiki Konst. Andrew and Nomiki will discuss Nomiki's new project, The Accountability Project

The Accountability Project is an organization focused on investigating misconduct in politics and the private sector and holding leaders accountable for their egregious actions. They believe that politicians and CEOs have a duty to act ethically. The  Accountability Project advances its mission using a combination of whistle blowing, investigative research and public awareness campaigns to hold public leaders accountable. America cannot wait for a story to break or a crisis to form for people to become aware of the intolerable behavior by leaders who are making decisions on behalf of the public. The Accountability Project dedicates its resources to informing the public of these bad actors before the crisis hits or story breaks at politically convenient times. Everyone should believe that the fewer bad actors in leadership positions, the healthier the political and business culture become - allowing qualified, ethical leaders to rise up.
