WEBINAR | Navigating Supply Chain Challenges while Advancing Human Rights

28 Apr
2020

Online
10:00 am - 11:00 am

Event Details

In a landscape of unprecedented disruption and financial downturn, how can companies navigate their supply chain challenges while advancing human rights?

The International Labour Organisation (ILO) estimates that there are 450 million people working in global supply chains. For many of these workers, the COVID-19 pandemic threatens not only their employment and financial security but has the potential to undermine their basic human and labour rights as vulnerability to exploitation and modern slavery increases.

As businesses and workers alike face the devastating consequences of the pandemic, it is critical to prioritise responsible business practices and ensure decent work and human rights are embedded throughout supply chains.

Join the Global Compact Network Australia and the United Nations Global Compact in an interactive webinar to explore how the choices your organisation makes today can help create more resilient, fair and sustainable global supply chains in the future.
