Businesses can play a crucial role in eliminating forced labour slavery by influencing governments to prioritize investments in law enforcement and survivor services, ending impunity for traffickers. When a justice system is functioning, it protects everyone and sets the standard for ethical working conditions in a way that corporations alone cannot. Our panelists look forward to engaging with you around the following critical topics:

  • Ethical Leadership
  • Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Examples of Value-Based Leaders in Canadian Business
  • Impact of Corporate – IJM Partnerships
  • IJM’s Theory of Change
  • How You Can Take Action Today
