Business and Human Rights: Doing Well and Doing Good, March 20

Tuesday, March 20 at 8:00 a.m. EDT (12:00 UTC)

This is an interactive webchat discussing how companies can incorporate human rights best practices into their policies, and how doing so positively affects their bottom line and reputation. The program will be in English.

The event page is www.facebook.com/StateDRL.

Participants will learn from a panel of experts how non-discrimination practices and inclusive workforces help recruit top talent and build stronger, more successful businesses. The panel will also explore how the empowerment of women, people with disabilities and other marginalized groups creates a double bottom line: advancing rights and profits. This webchat is the third in a series of virtual programs related to the Global Entrepreneurship Summit.
