PANELS

TAKING YOUR DEI TO THE NEXT LEVEL: SURVIVOR PERSPECTIVES

Human trafficking survivors face immense professional and psychological barriers to obtaining and maintaining safe employment. Yet conversations in DEI rarely address the underemployment of survivors in the private sector. When this deficit is addressed, it’s typically communicated from a lens of advocacy without highlighting the significant ROI that survivor employees bring to the workforce. Hear from survivor leaders as they share the challenges they’ve faced in corporate cultures, how companies can innovate their perspectives on DEI, and how cultivating trauma-informed work environments improves business results and workforce engagement for all employees.

HIGHLIGHTING THE “S” IN ESG: CASE STUDIES OF EXCELLENCE

While the challenge remains for corporations to define “S,” some corporations are making a significant dent in “S” metrics. Hear corporate leaders in our network share their innovative approaches to managing safe supply chains, creating inclusive workforce development career paths, adopting ownership models for employees, and spearheading DEI initiatives that advance the careers of those from disadvantaged backgrounds.

LEVERAGING ESG TO BUILD A MORE EQUITABLE WORLD

Impact-driven investors are the ones who will lead the way toward a more equitable global economy. Today’s investors must be more responsive and futuristic-minded. Hear from our panel of visionary investors on how they forecast the future workforce and employ strategies for climate change, waste prevention, labor standards, human rights, and more.

ESG IN ACTION: THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIPS

Socially responsible investing requires strategic partnerships. In this panel discussion, corporate leaders will discuss how they leverage partnering with non-profit organizations to drive their performance in “S” to the next level. Panelists will also share how these partnerships strengthen their corporate culture, employee engagement, and retention.
