Business Leaders Have a Role to Play in Ending Human TraffickingPosted: June 28, 2011
Today, corporations and businesses are more aware about their role in eliminating human trafficking and exploitation. They adopt a corporate strategy to prevent exploitation, take measures to clean their supply chain, train their staff, share their expertise to support anti-trafficking projects, take part in community initiatives, contribute to awareness-raising campaigns, support shelters for victims and so on. The Business Leader’s Award acknowledges the vision, creativity and contribution of businesses leaders in identifying, combating and preventing trafficking in persons.
The award is supported by the United Nations Global Compact, End Human Trafficking Now and the UN Global Initiative to Fight Human Trafficking, and FLA President & CEO Auret van Heerden serves on the advisory committee for the award. Nominate a business leader at www.businessleaderaward.org.
