Human Rights – is it any of your Business?

Calgary, Alberta

As the influence of global companies grows in the world economy, and as their impact on the societies in which they work deepens, it is becoming evident that their license to operate and their reputation depend on their acceptability to society at large.

Respect for human rights is at the core of this acceptability. Global leaders in business, government, and non-governmental organisations participate in a stakeholders’ dialogue. Its aim is to mobilise business and partners. Join us for a full day of dialogue, exhibitions, progress and enjoyment.
