Ethical Business and Modern Slavery Act Workshop
Date and Time
"Thank you so much for this morning. It was really helpful to have something we could do immediately as well as an easy to follow list of things you did to produce your Modern Slavery Statement. I found everything really valuable but having the practical, step by step approach made it feel much more achievable."
"I was honoured to be a part of the workshop, It was such an insightful look into how to physically report voluntarily. I will definitely be recommending to anyone who is (or isn’t!) looking to lodge a voluntary report."
Speakers include:Sally Irwin, CEO Freedom Hub / Scott Alden, Partner Holding Redlich Lawyers / plus we will have an auditing company and Whistleblowing company ready to take questions.
Everyone trained will become part of the Freedom Hub Ethical Business Network with regular breakfast, guest speaker, email updates, private FB group and listed on our website.Your logo will go on out website as an ethically trained business*
Every business, office and household has slavery in it. It is a sad fact in this world that even the tinned tuna we eat has slavery. The great news is we can all do something about it and many businesses are taking a lead by putting a statement on their website to save they oppose slavery of every kind.
This workshop is for you if.......
> you want your business or office to be recognised as an ethical business that takes a stand against slavery and exploitation of people.
> you want to sell products or services to large corporates who are looking for an ethical supply chain. (especially now that they must do that legally!)
> you want to be on the National Public register that lists ethical businesses who have submitted a Modern Slavery Statement.
We have been in this space since our doors opened.
We have been checking our supply chain for risk of slavery; all our suppliers sign a Code of Conduct for Human Rights and a Supplier Transparency Agreement. This is not new for us. There are many 'experts' out there who have never actually managed an ethical business, and there are many who are trying to make money out of this new act.
The profits from this training will support survivors of slavery in our Survivor School, and by doing this workshop with us you are demonstrating to the government and to stakeholders that you are serious about ending slavery. This is not about a law, but about people's lives! We can impact global slavery.
This training is PRACTICAL. It is not a talkfest but actual practitioners helping to get started on the day and giving you tools to do more in your own time.
Attend the Modern Slavery Act workshop and we will show you exactly how to .....
- Begin researching your supply chains
- Begin to write a modern slavery statement
- Write your supplier code of conduct and new agreements
- Write your HR policies
- Leverage the new market opportunities of ethical supply chains
- Learn to mobilise your team for good
* if you earnestly take steps to work toward transparency, we will add your logo to our website.
Refunds are available 7 days prior to the event
The Freedom Hub
The Freedom Hub exists to help people who have experienced human trafficking and slavery within Australia. Our survivors are predominantly women however this crime is also experienced by men. Sadly some survivors are children. At the Freedom Hub we run a Survivor School for rehabilitation, training and education. Through one-to-one mentoring, encouragement and supported learning, survivors can learn faster, feel valued, and re-establish trust. We collaborate with business partners, including offering employment opportunities for survivors, to help end this crime. We run a Cafe and Event Hire Venue to help raise funds and a slave free retail range for shopping. Our stunning warehouse venue is extremely popular for ethical weddings, engagements and parties. All profits support the Survivor School and cause. The Freedom Hub has generous benefactors, however ongoing additional funding is always vital to combat this crime.
