we do/Our mission
The Anti-Intimidation and Ethical Practices Forum (AEPF) was created
to assist professionals in certain fields who are being intimidated
for exposing corruption in the workplace.
We also provide advice to potential whistle-blowers in the governance,
accounting, auditing, business, risk management and related fields
on how to blow the whistle safely, responsibly and effectively.
Who we are
The AEPF was formed in May 2014 by eight professional bodies who
share a common concern about the rising levels of corruption in
the country and the concomitant increase in the intimidation of
the "guardians of governance" i.e. professionals who work
in fields such as auditing, risk management and governance.
