Sustainability and Human Rights professionals invited by the IE Women in Business Club urged IE students to prioritize human and labor rights in business.
The IE Women in Business Club hosted a panel of three business and human rights experts, focused on promoting sustainable social practices in business. The speakers addressed the latest industry trends, such as shifting standards on human rights within the United Nations, increasing government and NGO pressure and growing customer consciousness.
Representing employers’ interests across the UN, panelist Peter Hall currently sits as Adviser for Human Rights and Responsible Business Conduct at the International Organization of Employers (IOE). He examined the IOE’s recent policy approaches to influence worldwide debates such as the G20, along with progress being made for labor rights, sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) within businesses.
