First speakers announced for Innovate Rights 2019
In this three-day event, we ask: what are the risks and opportunities for business in engaging with human rights issues? And what can businesses do in practice to respect the rights of workers, customers and communities?
We begin with a specialised academic workshop on 14 May 2019.
The conference on 15-16 May 2019 considers human rights in this changing political environment.
The roles of business and government in relation to human rights are undergoing profound change. With government retreating in many policy areas, business is increasingly stepping forward and taking a leading role.
The Australian Human Rights Institute at UNSW Sydney invites international and Australian leaders in business, government, academia and civil society to explore innovations in business and policy, opportunities for business to play a greater role in improving human rights and practical solutions to rights challenges that industry is facing.
Innovate Rights is a chance to share ideas across sectors and consider new ways to work together on global challenges.
More speakers will be announced on this page soon, as well as information about the program and registrations.
