Lorraine Smith

Lorraine’s study of ethics began when she worked as a journalist, initially at Caxton community newspapers and later at the Sunday Times. Challenged by social injustices and apathetic responses, she responded by studying law and obtained her LLB at the University of South Africa.

Whilst finishing her degree, Lorraine become the group ethics officer for an international blue-chip organisation, where her true education in organisational ethics occurred. She has 22 years’ working experience, 12 of these formally in the field of ethics. Lorraine was certified as an ethics officer with EthicsSA (now The Ethics Institute) in 2008. She won an inaugural Rising Star award (national talent award across all sectors) in 2012 for her approach and achievements in driving ethics in the corporate environment.

The institutionalisation of ethics is her passion, especially training and creative solutions to assist stakeholders embrace ethics, as well as everything to do with whistleblowing and ethics investigations. She does, however, have experience in the “A-Z” of ethics management.

Lorraine is the owner of Simply Ethics, a senior associate of The Ethics Institute, and principle associate of Lucidum Consulting.
