QLD event: Modern Slavery and Transparency in Supply Chain

The Global Slavery Index estimates that 15,000 people in Australia live in conditions of modern slavery, within industries such as cleaning, construction, mining, manufacturing, hospitality and retail. Globally, more than 40 million are in conditions of modern slavery, placing many imported products at risk, including such ubiquitous items as laptops, computers, mobile phones, apparel and clothing accessories. The federal government is poised to enact legislation requiring many businesses that trade in Australia to identify and address slavery in their supply chains. 

The evening will also feature the QLD branch Annual General Meeting, which represents an opportunity for new members to join the local committee.

If you are interested in joining the local branch please complete the EOI form.
