Business and Human Rights – Aspen Leaders Forum Fall Meet-up: October 2014


Leaders Forum members gathered in NYC at the Ford Foundation on October 15-16, 2014 to focus on business and human rights. Mike Posner, Co-director of the Center for Business and Human Rights; John Morrison, Executive Director of the Institute for Human Rights and Business; and Irene Miller, Director, Inditex, joined the group as provocateurs and five Leaders Forum members shared live case examples of human rights issues within their companies.

The meeting concluded as the annual Aspen Business Education Symposium kicked off. Participants were encouraged to join this meeting and engage with the 160+ participants (including 50+ academics) in attendance for the two-day meeting. The Symposium had a particular focus on sourcing and employment practices–leveraging increased consumer demand for “responsible” labor practices and supply chains, and employer demand for graduates with strong operational skills.
