CLICK HERE FOR THE TOP100 MODERN SLAVERY INFLUENCERS 2018

Recognising Corporate Modern Slavery Influencers

The 2018 Annual UK Top100 Corporate Modern Slavery Influencers’ Index, developed and delivered by BRE and Sustain Worldwide, recognises individuals from all business sectors, media and academia who are influence leaders in raising awareness to end modern slavery and labour exploitation; those who advocate for robust ethical sourcing and human rights recognition and practices in UK direct business operations and global supply chains

 

Methodology 

The 2018 Annual UK Top100 Corporate Modern Slavery Influencers’ Index is based on the combination of influence on social media, as measured by Klout scores, and advocacy – policy impact, speaking and media engagements – in public life, which is evaluated by desk top research and then the two are aggregated via a proprietary algorithm. A panel that is independent of business will verify the Index’s transparency, robustness and independence. There is no requirement to 'enter’ or be nominated for the Index. However, those who are the most active and influential on the issues via social media and in public life will have a greater possibility of being recognised on The 2018 Annual UK Top100 Corporate Modern Slavery Influencers’ Index.

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.
