WADA seeking candidates for new Independent Ethics Board

The World Anti-Doping Agency is seeking candidates to fill 7 positions on its new Independent Ethics Board.

A WADA statement said “In November 2021, WADA’s Foundation Board approved a Code of Ethics, recognizing the importance of ensuring the highest ethical standards in the governance and administration of WADA. The purpose of the Code of Ethics is to establish clear ethical standards over the activities of WADA Officials (as defined within the Code of Ethics) to allow the Agency to achieve its global collaborative mission for doping-free sport and protect its core values. By endorsing the Code of Ethics, WADA and all its Officials undertake to respect and disseminate the culture of ethics, loyalty, and integrity within their respective areas of competence.”

The 7 successful candidates will work alongside the appointed Ethics Officer to implement the Code of Ethics.  

The deadline for application submission is Monday 28th February 2022.
