Last month, Sen. Charles Grassley (R-IA) introduced an amendment that passed his Chamber of Congress by unanimous consent, designating Saturday July 30th as National Whistleblower Appreciation Day. On Monday, the Council on Inspectors General for Integrity and Efficiency, Office of Special Counsel and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration celebrated that resolution on Capitol Hill. The event featured remarks from FBI Director James Comey. He called the FBI an imperfect organization made up of imperfect people. “We must understand that the path to getting better is humility,” Comey said. He urged federal leaders to foster a culture where employees can admit their mistakes, and where whistleblowers feel comfortable enough to come forward. “It’s important that you provide opportunities for people to watch and to see you,” he said. “That’s the second reason I’m here today. I want my organization to know that I came — because they will talk about that, and even without having to explain the meaning of it, they will derive meaning from it.” Click the play icon above to hear an excerpt from Comey’s remarks — including a shout out to Cleveland Cavaliers’ star LeBron James.
