Speakers from the council, police, NGO’s and small businesses come together in person for a collaborative roundtable discussion on modern slavery issues pertaining to Sussex. The post pandemic context will shine a light on the particular issues faced over the past 18 months for all sectors.
We have a stellar line up of speakers..
- Colleen Theron, CEO Ardea International
- Noree Webb, ATMS Responce Coordinator, Anti Trafficking and Modern Slavery Team at The Salvation Army
- Tim Read, Exploitation & Violence Reduction Coordinator, Brighton and Hove City Council
- And more to be announced…
The event will offer interesting discussion, a networking opportunity and the chance to be together in person to have these important conversations.
The esteemed speakers will offer their perspectives on the anti-slavery initiatives they are leading on in our region within the broader global context of how the global climate crisis and prevailing market and societal norms create conditions for modern slavery and labour exploitation to exist. With a special focus on the impacts of the last 18-months, and trends and changes made in response to the Covid-19 pandemic regarding modern slavery.
I shall look forward to sharing my insights with you, borne of more than 20 years’ experience as an environmental and human rights lawyer, on the implications for businesses and how Ardea International’s training and advisory services support businesses to demonstrate their responsibility, evidence their compliance and manage their exposure to human rights and especially modern slavery in their direct business operations and supply chains.
Tickets are available here and at a discounted or wavered price by request, simply contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org. I look forward to seeing you on the 4th November and sharing our learnings.
