About Human Rights South West meet-ups

This is a networking event for professionals in human rights, based in the South West.

We are a group of professionals who want to share ideas and experience of working on human rights that are impacted by business. Our goal is to stimulate collaboration and best practice.

We plan to hold quarterly networking events that bring together experts on human rights from businesses, NGOs, and law enforcement in the South West.

Each meet up will be an informal gathering, organised around 2-3 ‘spotlight’ talks of up to 5 minutes each. Speakers will share stories and insights about what they do to prevent and remedy human rights violations in businesses and their supply chains.
