The COVID-19 crisis has given more visibility to already existing social issues and has brought to the forefront the importance for businesses to embed and respect human rights. During this webinar we will cover some of the social risks that have been amplified during the crisis particularly when it comes to global supply chains, including modern slavery, health and safety and layoffs and lack of income protection for workers. We will also cover, how investors are adapting their engagement practices and their expectations for companies now and during the recovery to better prepare and become more resilient to shocks in the future.
The webinar will last for 60 min, and there will be opportunity for Q&A.
