Who’s In Your Supply Chain? Ending Modern Day Slavery
14 June 2019 @ 7:45 am - 9:30 am
There are more slaves today than at any other time in history. 45.8 million people in 167 countries are trapped in what is known as “modern slavery,” with seven out of ten of these victims directly related to the private sector. These people, who make the products we buy and harvest the food we eat, are exploited every day for their labor. Despite the best efforts made by governments, the United Nations and NGOs around the world, only 0.2% of the victims around the world are helped each year.
The Mekong Club is an association of NGOs and private companies working together to find a solution for modern day slavery. Join their leaders and members for a panel discussion on the actions you can take to eliminate slavery from your supply chain.
