Due to modern slavery legislation developments in the past months, including the enactment of the US Uyghur Forced Labor Prevention Act and similar forthcoming regulations in the EU, Canada, UK, Australia, and Japan, companies across all industries are under pressure to navigate guidance and show progress in the implementation of their anti-slavery policies and management strategies. 

Join us at our San Francisco office for a discussion on “Modern Slavery in Global Value Chains: Trends and Challenges Ahead” on September 29, featuring Claudio Formisano, BSR’s Modern Slavery lead, and Jenny Vaughan, BSR’s Human Rights Managing Director. The event will share latest developments and guidance and provide a conversation on the state of affairs in the broader modern slavery field as well as opportunities for business to fast-track their strategies and policies. 

Following the presentation, members can engage with the BSR team via 1:1 deeper-dive meetings.
