Business Leader's Awards 2012: Call for Nominations
Business leaders are uniquely placed to combat exploitative labour practices and to raise awareness of human trafficking among their workforces, suppliers, business partners, peers and even consumers. UN.GIFT, the End Human Trafficking Now Campaign ( EHTN) and the UN Global Compact established the Business Leaders Award to Fight Human Trafficking to recognize those men and women taking an active stand against modern-day slavery in the private sector.
Now in its second cycle, the Business Leaders Award is an opportunity to shine the spotlight on what businesses are doing against human trafficking. The first-ever award was jointly bestowed Forum in December 2010, to Christopher Davis (Body Shop International), Marilyn Carlson Nelson (Carlson Companies) and Robert Rigby-Hall (LexisNexis, Inc.).
The Business Leader's Award acknowledges the vision, creativity and contribution of businesses leaders in identifying, combating and preventing trafficking in persons. Nominations are now being accepted. Further information on the award and the nomination form can be found at www.businessleaderaward.org. All nominations should be submitted by 31 January 2012.
