Join AmCham and K&L Gates as our Q&A panel will discuss the practical application of the newly introduced Modern Slavery laws, why this legislation is important and the positive changes that can take place where driven at a business and organisational level. By attending the event, you will be provided practical take-aways including how to start identifying the risks to your business or organisation, advice and tools to help obtain supply chain clarity, and guidance for you and your own suppliers to help get ready for what lies ahead.
