Types of
Human Trafficking

"Poverty and economic marginalization are primary drivers that make women and girls vulnerable to exploitation, which is why we must harness the power of the private sector to create pathways to safe employment, ethical supply chains, and economic stability. More organizations are operating in line with the Ten Principles of the United Nations Global Compact.However, our efforts alone are insufficient to create the world we want. That takes meaningful partnerships with organizations like Nomi Network, whose programs focused on workforce development and ethical supply chains are invaluable to our collective goals of creating a culture of integrity and upholding our responsibilities to people and the planet.”
-Adam Gordon, Interim Executive Director, UN Global Compact Network USA
