Conscientious Capitalism: Labor Trafficking Forum

This event has been postponed to an as-yet undetermined date. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, and will post information about rescheduling as soon as we have it. Please continue to check the website for updates.

The modern day slave trade is a multi-billion dollar industry. Worldwide, 40.3 million individuals are trafficked for labor, sexual exploitation, and profit. Globally, the International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.1 million people trapped in forced labor in industries including agriculture, construction, domestic work and manufacturing. The U.S. Department of Labor has identified 148 goods from 76 countries made by forced and child labor. Labor trafficking is a global problem that is happening right here in North Carolina’s backyard.

This free forum will convene national and North Carolina-based C-suite executives, government officials and non-profit leaders to examine how labor trafficking manifests in global and local North Carolina supply chains.

Business school students, business professionals and business faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.

What to expect:

  • Education about global and local labor trafficking
  • Learn from national experts
  • Hear about local anti-labor trafficking activities
  • Discuss what business initiatives can be developed to combat labor trafficking

Time: 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m.

Location: Kenan Center, #204 (adjacent to the McColl Building at UNC’s Kenan-Flagler Business School)
