Join us for this 2 Part webcast as we examine the area of human rights risk and the possible wide-ranging impacts on corporations.  While many companies think of human rights in terms of compliance or ethics, it is a risk that is much broader.  We will talk to experts from NGOs who have been active in this area for some time and with company representatives who are taking action to help mitigate human rights risk. 

In Part 1 of this Webcast we will speak with leading NGOs in the area of human rights and business to learn about global principles for human rights, the roles and obligations of countries and companies and how some businesses are beginning to incorporate human rights issues into how they operate. 

Key questions addressed:

  • What, exactly is human rights risk?
  • Why is it gaining more attention from NGOs, the public and governments?
  • What are the UN Guiding Principles on Human Rights and Business and how are companies incorporating them?


Who should attend

Executives from: Risk, HR, Procurement, Supply Chain, Audit, Compliance, Legal, Operations, Ethics, Sustainability, Finance, Corporate Social Responsibility.
