We warmly welcome you to Australia’s first national online modern slavery conference. This is an unprecedented event aiming to connect communities and build partnerships so that we may learn from each other, and work together with the ultimate aim of preventing, detecting and eliminating modern slavery. We will examine how to best assist and protect survivors, and the critical importance of raising awareness of modern slavery as an urgent legal and social issue. We will explore supply chain reporting, the challenges it presents, and how to address them. We will discuss capacity building in the broader community, and how to expand awareness and establish connections with potential stakeholders as yet undiscovered. In this inaugural conference, we will build our knowledge, benefiting from the combined strengths and insights of our diverse stakeholders; and we will build partnerships, to put our knowledge into action.
This conference has been convened by Anti-Slavery Australia as part of an Australian Government grant to build a national anti-slavery partnership.
