Are you up-to-date on emerging trends in corporate transparency and accountability? You can be sure you are by attending a free luncheon conference in New York next week that examines the quickly-evolving field of slavery and the law.
Regulations that require companies to investigate forced labor slavery in their products have been emerging at the state, federal and international levels. Socially-responsible investment funds are screening companies for their human rights standards and practices.
The law firm of Lowenstein Sandler LLP and Free the Slaves are co-sponsoring the conference to build greater awareness and support for initiatives to remove slavery from the global economy.
Key Conference Themes:
- Current Landscape: What are the current efforts to eradicate slavery from supply chains and are they effective?
- What’s Next: What new, modified, and expanded efforts to change supply chain behavior are on the horizon?
- Being Prepared: Are businesses and their counsel prepared to address effectively the growing issues of supply chain transparency and accountability?
- Jean Baderschneider: Former Exxon Mobil Vice President of Global Procurement and current CEO of the Global Fund to End Slavery
- Ralph Falzone: U.S. Department of State
- Cecilia Gardner: Jewelers Vigilance Committee
- Judy Gearhart: International Labor Rights Forum
- Steve Hitov: Coalition of Immokalee Workers
- E. Christopher Johnson: Center for Justice, Rights and Dignity
