Time to challenge the status quo: What’s working, what’s not, and what’s next for business and human rights?

09:25 - 10:05
Business transformation. Systemic change. We’ve seen this film before. This is the 10th anniversary of this conference, and each and every year we’ve talked about ‘transformation’. So, what’s new? 
Well, primarily legislation. 
A tidal wave of national and international legislation has put human rights firmly on the agenda for business. This legislation alone isn’t going to create the step change required. But it does create a potential springboard for action. 
So, in this opening session, we’re going to have a very real conversation about a challenge to the status quo. We’ll have a frank discussion about what’s working and what isn’t, as our speakers assess how business can utilise incoming legislation and renewed drivers to deliver real and lasting change.
