2018 is shaping up to be a seminal year for Australian business regarding modern slavery, with reporting legislation likely to be tabled in the next few months and more and more Australian companies working to identify and act on their modern slavery risks at home and abroad.
To help Australian business to navigate these new developments and share learnings in a safe space, the GCNA has launched a Modern Slavery Community of Practice for business members.
The second Modern Slavery Community of Practice meeting will be held on Thursday, 30 August 2018 in Sydney.
The GCNA Modern Slavery Community of Practice is a small, interactive and invitation only forum that operates under Chatham House Rules. The Community of Practice meets quarterly and will rotate meetings around Melbourne, Sydney and Perth with in-person presence preferred.
The Community of Practice’s purpose is two-fold:
- To discuss the most pressing challenges and obstacles facing Australian business with respect to managing and communicating modern slavery risks and implementing any new legislation and to discuss good practice in responding to these challenges; and
- To help provide a business perspective as appropriate to related external discussions, including for example potentially providing collective input to any consultation around government guidance for any new legislation.
