The Danish Ethical Trading Initiative (DIEH) is hosting an international seminar on the challenges faced by marginalised groups, working under some of the most difficult conditions in global supply chains, discussing how addressing discrimination and injustice directly with suppliers can mitigate the risks of slavery and child labour in supply chains and ensure inclusive workplaces.
The seminar is from 1-4 pm on the 12 November in Copenhagen, Denmark, and is organised by DIEH together with IDSN and Ethical Trading Initiative UK. Follow this link to sign up – clicking on “Tilmeld” at the bottom to the page.

Other speakers will include representatives from NGOs, trade union specialists and corporate sector actors.
