Human Trafficking and Modern Day Slavery

Thursday October 26, 10:15 am-11:15 am

Human trafficking and modern day slavery have become central issues on the business radar in recent years, not least with recent legislation in the U.K. and United States on the subject. These issues affect more than 100 million people each year and undermine human rights ranging from bodily security to freedom of movement and livelihood. Companies have a key role to play in tackling human trafficking, including a responsibility to ensure trafficking and slave-like conditions don’t exist within their own operations or supply chain. Participants in this important conversation will gain insight into the growing legal requirements around human trafficking; best practice in identifying, managing and remediating risk across operations; and examples of industrywide efforts to tackle root causes.
