Modern Slavery

Overview

Modern Slavery 

The Modern Slavery Act is a globally leading piece of legislation which requires UK businesses to disclose a 'slavery and human trafficking statement'. This requires a business to have deep understanding of its supply chain andCPD 2 understand its modern slavery risk across the world. In this interactive session, PwC will explore the Act and highlight considerations and priorities for the Procurement professional.
