Webinar: Can supply chain technology deliver improved human rights?

Innovation Forum would like to invite you to join a complimentary webinar on the potential of new technologies to change the game in the management of human rights risks for companies.

This one-hour discussion will take place on Wednesday the 21st of September and will provide you with a focused debate on the uses of nascent blockchain technology and mobile-based applications.

We’ll discuss their potential (and limitations) in bringing long-awaited effective solutions to human rights abuses and how companies can apply them to refine their due diligence.

Some of the key questions our panel will discuss include:

· What exactly is blockchain and how can companies use it for human rights issues?

· How far away we are from blockchain application at scale, beyond pilots and one-off projects to widespread uptake?

· Do these technologies truly represent a change of approach in company engagement with human rights?

· Are there any pilot case studies that are leading to significant improvements on the ground?

· Are technological solutions another ‘hands off’ type approach to engagement, a new generation of auditing?

· Which technologies support and enhance direct worker engagement effectively?

· Given the access challenges for those at the end of the supply chain, is the role of technology in managing human rights risks overhyped?

· How are leading companies applying technology to their due diligence process?

The webinar will take place on Wednesday 21st September, 13.00 – 14.00 BST.
