Workshop: Human Rights Due Diligence and Reporting
13 June 2017

The UNGC UK Network is partnering with SHIFT and WBCSD to hold a one day workshop in Johannesburg focused on Human Rights Due Diligence and Reporting.

The workshop will provide training to UNGC UK and WBCSD members with operations or suppliers in Africa. SHIFT will tailor the workshop to the needs of the participating companies and individuals. By the end of the events, participants will have a solid understanding of their respective organisation’s responsibility to respect human rights and will have familiarity with a number of key tools that will help them prioritise their salient human rights, embed the UN Guiding Principles throughout their organisations, and manage and report publicly on their salient human rights. A more detailed agenda will be circulated in advance.

This workshop is part of a larger DFID-funded initiative comprised of three capacity-building phases:

  • First, training the UNGC UK and WBCSD Secretariat personnel and representatives from their member companies on key UNGP concepts, due diligence elements, and public disclosure through the UNGP Reporting Framework – these events took place on December 1st and January 25th, respectively, in London;
  • Second, delivering combined capacity-building workshop to member offices, subsidiaries, and suppliers in an appropriate field location – 13th June in Johannesburg with other workshops in development;
  • Third, returning to the field locations after 6 months and providing additional training or support to the second stage participants, in the most appropriate format (additional training, clinic sessions etc.)

Please contact the Secretariat for more information and to confirm your interest in attending.

Webinar: UK Network AGM
22 June 2017

In compliance with the Network’s Memorandum and Articles of Association, we are required to hold an Annual General Meeting. Given the demands of our events programme this spring, it has been decided that the AGM should be done online rather than in person. This format still requires that we achieve quorum to fulfill our legal obligation, so your support would be greatly appreciated.

The AGM webinar will begin at 3pm and, as always, the AGM will be brief – not longer than 30 minutes. It will be followed by a presentation on the UNGC’s new funding model.
