An afternoon with Kevin Hyland OBE, the United Kingdom’s first Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner
The UK Modern Slavery Act: A model for Australia to follow?
You are cordially invited to an afternoon with Kevin Hyland OBE, the United Kingdom’s first Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner.
There are an estimated 45.8 million people around the world living in modern slavery. Modern slavery affects every country, and for many large businesses – their supply chains. The UK Modern Slavery Act 2015 is being viewed as a ground-breaking model for action by governments, particularly in relation to requiring transparency and reporting by companies on their supply chains.
The Australian Government has launched a Joint Parliamentary Committee Inquiry into whether Australia should follow the UK lead and adopt an Australian Modern Slavery Act.
Mr Kevin Hyland OBE, Independent Anti-Slavery Commissioner
Mr Andrew Metcalfe AO, Partner EY and Former Secretary of Department of Immigration.
Andrew Goledzinowski, Australian Ambassador for People Smuggling and Human Trafficking, DFAT.
Grace Forrest, Walk Free Foundation
