Creating a Culture of Transparency in the Church
The Catholic Church has repeatedly and rightfully been accused of a lack of transparency. As the world’s oldest non-profit organization, indeed, the world’s oldest institution, she faces many challenges to adapt to current professional standards of financial transparency. This webinar defines what a transparent culture is in the Church, discusses the challenges, and considers specific environments in the Church where transparency is needed.
