The sectorial focus is the aeronautical industry. The project concludes in July. A report of the findings with recommendations for best practice in Codes of Conduct will be presented at a launch event, date and venue tbc. If you would like to comment or contribute to the project, please email your thoughts, or to arrange a call to discuss with Ardea CEO Colleen Theron.
University of Pisa
Colleen also teaches on the MBA graduate programme at the University of Pisa on modern slavery and responsible business, and has taught on a graduate programme at the Westminster Business School.
“Colleen Theron delivered a three hour session to the students on the MSc Purchasing and Supply Chain Management at the University of Westminster as part of their studies on Sustainable Procurement. Student feedback was that this was the best taught session they had experienced, they really felt they had learnt how the Modern Slavery Act has impacted Procurement and the wider issues of due diligence in procurement.” Rachel Lander
