What will the webinar cover?
Scrutiny from legislators, civil society, media, investors, clients and suppliers is increasing exponentially year-on-year. The indications are that the ever-more stringent recommendations of last year’s published Independent Review of the UK Modern Slavery Act (2015) will be introduced in 2020. Are you ready and prepared?
Your Modern Slavery statement is the public disclosure mechanism to provide transparency about the actions you are taking to implement policies and processes to meet your global supply chain obligations, mitigate their impacts and provide remedy where you encounter illegal or unethical practices.
Key areas of discussion include:
- Best practice in preparing for and writing your Modern Slavery Statement, drawing on the experience of Lou Nicholls who led on the M&S statements 2015-2019 that featured highly in the CHRB and GGRF benchmarks
- What ‘good looks like’ in a Modern Slavery Statement – compliance, conformance and good practice explained by Chris Bayer, Development International, whose research outputs include the GGRF FTSE100 and RE100 Indices
- Trends in Modern Slavery Statements reporting – analysis of qualitative and quantitative data undertaken by Hannah Lerigo-Stephens, Rights Lab and Nottingham University
Who’s the webinar for?
- You’re responsible for writing or contributing to the submission of your organisation’s Modern Slavery Statement, including HR, legal counsel, procurement, and compliance professionals
- Your organisation is writing its first or aiming to improve its existing Modern Slavery Statement – it’s a legal requirement for companies whose annual turnover exceeds £36million to file a Modern Slavery Statement
