Welcome to the Great Women in Compliance Podcast, co-hosted by Lisa Fine and Mary Shirley.
Today's guest is Sarah Powell. Sarah is the kind of person who makes everyone around her stronger. Her work in ethics and Compliance is directly related to her commitment to social justice and making a positive impact through anti-bribery and anti-corruption work. Lisa can vouch for that as she works with Sarah as Global Compliance Counsel, Director, Third-Party ABC Compliance at Pearson.
Sarah returned to her home in South Africa from London at the beginning of the pandemic and had her daughter. She discussed how both of these events had impacted her. In particular, she talks about some of her experiences during quarantine, how they showed the resilience in South Africa and how the pandemic could also breed corruption.
She also shares her views on what those of us outside South Africa can learn from their experiences, particularly how they talk about the past and issues. This episode is a great reminder of why we do this work and how we can directly influence society as a whole.
