11.10h - 12.30h | 3th Floor | Integrity Game | Dilemmax - the card game that helps organisations to stimulate and strengthen a virtuous and inclusive climate and helps prevent breaches of integrity and discrimination. Partos and Morals at Work developed a version of the game focussing the international aid and development sector. Partos consulted organisation members on occuring dilemmas in the practice and these are used in our version of this card game. Koos Rooseboom from Morals at Work will be present to play this card game with you. They will also show  other games they developed. Partos and Morals at Work belief that by playing integrity games, people become more aware in how integrity affects work and it targets exchange of point of views between colleagues, to stimulate discussion and strengthen the culture of integrity. 


So, let’s meet and play.
