OBJECTIVES

The Global Initiative has partnered with Babson College’s Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery and the International Organization for Migration to establish RESPECT: the Responsible and Ethical Private Sector Coalition against Trafficking.

This powerful initiative serves as a platform that brings together thought leaders, practitioners, and policy makers who have a clear understanding of what issues lie ahead to consider possible solutions to public and private sector challenges surrounding human trafficking.

RESPECT mobilises the business community as a strategic partner to put this illicit trade out of business, but also support the business community with training material; identify best practices and positive experiences; and carve out a set of challenges to pursue with various collaborators.

The goal of RESPECT is to:

  • Raise awareness and build understanding on human trafficking in global supply chains;
  • Provide a platform for peer exchange, to share knowledge, present and improve best practices and existing strategies for countering human trafficking in supply chains, and to develop new initiatives to implement going forward;
  • Publish industry-specific case studies for use by a wide audience;
  • Provide stakeholders and decision makers (mainly from the private sector) with the tools they need to identify, map, and combat human trafficking in business supply chains;
  • Generate momentum amongst the business community to share knowledge in the pursuit of improved prevention and mitigation of this issue
  • Engage businesses and provide them with training tools;
  • Create a forum for the business community to share its experience; and
  • Link businesses with the UN, NGOs, and the youth to combat human trafficking.

We achieve these goals through a range of initiatives, including our popular online webinar series.
