|Conscientious Capitalism: Labor Trafficking & Supply Chains||Return to listing|
The International Labor Organization estimates that there are 20.1 million people trapped in forced labor globally. Labor trafficking occurs most frequently in industries that require lots of unskilled manual labor and have work sites that are closed-off, concealed, or out-of-view from the general public. These include agriculture, domestic work, landscaping services, construction, the nail salon industry, and restaurant/food service.
Labor trafficking is a global problem that is happening right here in North Carolina’s backyard. Twenty-five percent of NC migrant farmworkers had experienced a situation that might constitute trafficking NC is ranked among the TOP 3 U.S. states for labor trafficking incidents involving H-2A or J-1 visa holders and 8th in the nation for human trafficking cases reported.
This free forum will convene national and local C-suite executives and nonprofit leaders to examine how labor trafficking manifests in global supply chains. Panelists will outline the role that future business leaders, employers, employees and corporate executives can play in stopping these abuses.
Business school students, business professionals and business faculty are strongly encouraged to attend.

After careful consideration, we have decided to postpone the planned March 27th Conscientious Capitalism: Labor Trafficking & Global Supply Chain Forum. Given the continued uncertainty of the COVID-19 situation, the status of University operations at this time, and the national impacts on travel, we're confident this is the right decision.
We have begun the process of reaching out to confirmed speakers and partners and will suspend future promotional activity ASAP. Our tentative plan is to reschedule this event later in the year. We appreciate your continued interest in this issue and in other Kenan-Flagler/Kenan Institute events and programs.
If you have any questions regarding this event, please contact the event administrator, Kim Allen via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
