Where: RIBA, 66 Portland Place Central London W1B 1AD
The 2018 Annual UK Top100 Corporate Modern Slavery Influencers and their colleagues and stakeholders are invited to attend the Recognition Dinner on 26 September 2018 in Central London.
We are delighted that Baroness Young of Hornsey OBE will host the Recognition Dinner. The Baroness is a champion of human rights, and has introduced a Bill before Parliament that proposes public authorities are included in requirements under Section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 (transparency in supply chains).
During the dinner, the rankings of the 2018 Top100 Influencers will be announced, culminating in one person being prestigiously recognised as The 2018 Annual UK Top1 Corporate Modern Slavery Influencer. Each of the Top5 recognised will be invited to give a short speech detailing their influence to date and setting out what they will do next to expose and eradicate modern slavery and labour exploitation in UK direct business operations and global supply chains.
The Recognition Dinner further provides an opportunity to acclaim those influencers whose endeavours have made a difference, and to renew our collective commitment to expose and end modern slavery and labour exploitation.
Host for the evening - Baroness Lola Young of Hornsey, OBE
