Forced labor is a complex, multi-industry challenge that requires collaboration among governments, companies, non-governmental organizations and other stakeholders. Companies have deployed innovative techniques and best practices to deal with this complex issue. As many of the issues that can lead to forced labor are common across industries, the EICC has been working via direct and indirect partnerships and collaboration to expand these tools to other industries facing these challenges. This panel will provide concrete examples of best practices among stakeholders to deal with this difficult issue.

Join us for a discussion on what the buyers are requiring and how IT companies can demonstrate their progress in these areas over time.
