October 7

 

The speech by Ms Astrid Nøkleby Heiberg on Monday October 7. has been canceled.

Ms Heidi von Weltzien Høivik has very kindly offered to give a talk on ‘Whistleblowing – A Moral Right and Duty,’ a topic that she has worked extensively with for many years. 

Ms Høivik has an distinguished international career, and has – among other things – been the Executive Vice-President and Dean of Faculty (Prorektor) of the Norwegian School of Management (BI). She is also a Fellow of the Harvard Executive Program of the Institute Education Management and the Harvard Program on International Negotiations, and has been Visiting Professor at Tel Aviv International School of Management. In 2000, she was asked to teach at the Fudan School of Management, Shanghai, in their joint MBA program with the Norwegian School of Management. This led to teaching assignments in China twice each year until 2006. 

Ms Høivik has published scores of books and articles on ethics and leadership as a Professor at BI Norwegian Business School, the Department of Strategy and Entrepreneurship, Oslo. Whistleblowing is a very hot topic, specifically in light of the latest developments in international politics. Ms Høivik is currently Professor Emerita at BI. 

The Forum thanks her for stepping in on such a short notice.
