Parity Consulting has partnered with Australia’s leading expert in Modern Slavery Sally Irwin from The Freedom Hub to host an intimate breakfast with a small number of influential leaders from HR and Talent Acquisition. The Modern Slavery Act (2018) means that all companies who have more than $100 Million in revenue have to provide comprehensive reporting on their supply chain. This revenue threshold is set to decrease to $50 Million next year and the reporting requirements will only increase. Reporting is the first step, we anticipate corporate Australia will be held accountable to do much more given the 30% increase in Slavery numbers over the past 3 years accordingly to the Modern Slavery index.
This event shares how this will affect you/your business, practical ways in which you can contribute to the solution and a chance to compare stories with your peers.
Below is more information on this important topic as well as hearing Sally Irwin share some insights on the topic:
