Opening Keynote | Advancing Human Rights: The Corporate Impact on the Societal Integrity and Protecting the Value of People

Any individual can have a positive impact on the effort to combat human rights concerns, but few have the resources to do more than the global companies that are immersed in the communities around the world burdened by human rights violations and intrusions. Companies and their wide-ranging relationships recognize a responsibility now more than ever to partner and take swift action to help combat and play a leading role in addressing social impact and justice. Many of these efforts can be served by better policy. Policy that can then be transformed into better practice. Learn how companies and their leaders are influencing change to improve lives and inspiring business practices that drive ethical responsibility, guard social values and respect human dignity.
