The Modern Slavery Act in Practice

Nine part video series

This video series was filmed during

The Modern Slavery Act in Practice – strategies & processes for action

a half-day workshop on 29 Aug 2019 in collaboration with GHD and ISCA.

This half-day workshop showcased how leaders in the sector were preparing for the requirements of the Act and implementing change throughout their supply chain for greater transparency as well as raising awareness of human rights and modern slavery issues. Through case studies, a panel discussion and peer-to-peer learning participants dived into the strategies, processes and actions required to shift practices to a new level, towards the eradication of modern slavery up and down our supply chains. The event aimed to provide a greater understanding of the new modern slavery legislation, what it means for Australian Government, business and industry through providing:

  • detailed knowledge from industry leaders on how their Modern Slavery Strategy has been implemented across various business units and how this plays out in practice
  • an understanding of the Modern Slavery Reporting Requirements, public procurement implications and long term challenges and opportunities
  • connection to industry experts and the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals
