#Human Rights


They may not be in plain sight, but there are 40.3 million people in some form of modern slavery. That’s the combined population of New York, London, and Bangkok. All of us in the business community share a responsibility to take a stand.

Join Thomson Reuters, together with key event partners and sponsors, on August 28 as we unite global business and thought leaders to focus on the role investors, executives, and board directors play in stopping slavery and how technology, data, and regulation can help tackle this issue.

The Stop Slavery Summit will showcase the growing willingness for businesses to work together toward a common goal and take action—from exploring why investors are expecting more from their portfolio companies than simply financial returns to spotlight sessions on how technology is making it easier to identify supply chain risk. Full speaker lineup now available! To view this and the summit agenda, please visit the summit website
