In 1993, a few individuals decided to take a stance against corruption and created Transparency International. Now the leading global anti-corruption non-governmental organization, present in more than 100 countries, the movement works relentlessly to stir the world’s collective conscience and bring about change.
Frank Vogl, a co-founder of Transparency International, will present the key findings of his new book: “Waging War on Corruption”. Fifteen years ago he came to Iowa to highlight the challenges before the new anti-corruption movement and now he returns with a message of surprising optimism .
In addition to his work with Transparency International, Frank has also worked as an economics journalist for Reuters and Times of London, the Director of Information & Public Affairs at the World Bank, and in 1990 he established his own international public relations firm, Vogl Communications. He is a member of the International Council of the New Israel Fund; an advisory council member of the United Nations Association of the Greater Washington Metropolitan Area; a member of the “Wisemen” public relations organization, and a former Board member of the Ethics Resource Center.
Frank has served as the Vice Chairman of Transparency International (TI), Member of the TI Advisory Council and Advisor to the TI Managing Director. Frank is also Co-founder and Vice Chairman of the Partnership for Transparency Fund (PTF), which has funded over 200 anti-bribery projects across the developing world.
