Modern Slavery in Sussex: how can we support employers and consumers to avoid modern slavery in supply chains?

In 2015, the Modern Slavery Act put in place legislation requiring businesses to report on processes in place to prevent modern slavery in their supply chains. Consumers and civil society, it was expected, would scrutinise, and hold businesses accountable for their actions. Five years on, how effective have these measures been? What challenges remain for businesses and how can these be better supported? Drawing on research, practice, and delivery perspectives from across the Sussex business landscape, this webinar will explore the responsibilities handed to businesses and discuss the parts we all play in identifying and eradicating the problem through our choices and actions.

This project is funded by the University of Sussex and the Economic and Social Research Council to help translate academic knowledge into action. The activity is facilitated by always possible, a unique consultancy looking at 21st century problem-solving through connected conversation.

The Anti-modern Slavery project brings together a host of activities, research and content and as part of this we have set up a community content hub via a peer networking platform called The Possibility Club.

Sign up to the Anti-Modern Slavery ‘circle’ to join a community of people and organisations interested in discussing, debating and disrupting. It’s a place to share ideas, build collaboration and move towards changing the conversation.

Bringing together cutting-edge research, business innovation, grassroots practice in the community and individual lived experience – we’re pooling our knowledge to see what the future might look like.

If you are open to sharing ideas and building collaborations about modern slavery and ways to raise awareness of, and ultimately combat, the problem – then we’d love you to join a new community of thought.

Visit Anti-modern Slavery: Changing the Conversation to view the circle and get involved.
