So you’re pretty sure there’s no slavery lurking within your supply chain? But what can you do to be 100 per cent sure?
Modern Slavery. You’d know it if you saw it, right?
Especially if it was under your nose…
And on your watch…
In fact, you’re certain that there are no instances of modern slavery in your supply chain, because you’ve safe guarded against that terrible reality. You’ve got procedures in place.
But do you really know what your supplier’s supplier’s supplier is up to?
Given that 40.3 million people are victims of modern slavery across the world, it’s quite possible you don’t.
Finding instances of slavery somewhere along the supply chain is the stuff of every procurement pros worst nightmare, but the stats don’t lie.
And that’s why it’s so important for procurement teams around the world to accept and address the problem, in order to put this abhorrent practice to bed for good.
On 2nd May 2018 we’ll be hosting a new webinar – Procurement Unchained – in partnership with SAP Ariba as part of the Procure with Purpose movement.
We’ll be discussing:
- What can you do to identify instances of modern slavery within your supply chains?
- How to eradicate slavery once it’s identified and ultimately, prevent occurrences altogether
- How is legislation like the UK’s Modern Slavery Act impacting business policy?
- Could blockchain and other emerging technologies help us put an end to this abhorrent practice?
Who is speaking on the webinar?
- Tania Seary, Founder – Procurious
- Padmini Ranganathan, Global Vice President – SAP Ariba
- Fiona David, Executive Director Global Research – Walk Free Foundation
- Alisa Voznaya, Manager, Risk Consulting – KPMG UK
