Anti-slavery day is on the 18th of October and so in this bonus episode our topic of conversation turns to modern slavery, an unseen crime that takes place under our very noses.
It is estimated that there are around 40.3 million people falling victim to modern slavery around the world, 13,000 estimated in the UK. It hides away, taking place in restaurants, nail-bars, hotels, car washes and private homes.
Victims of modern slavery have no typical face. Men, women and children of all different ages, ethnicities and nationalities fall victim. But those that are most vulnerable in our society, within minority and socially excluded groups, are most at risk.
But what exactly is modern slavery? What are the laws against it and how effective are the laws? How can you raise awareness in your organisation or company around this topic and how can you affect change?
Andrew and Cindy welcome three experts on this topic - Jimmy Brannigan (NETPositive Futures), Andrew Smith (Wilberforce Institute) and Cristina Talens (Wilberforce Institute) - to answer these imperative questions.
