September 13, 2017: UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights: Effective Implementation and Reporting

August 3, 2017

Global Affairs Canada invites you to learn more about the relevance of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights including practical steps companies can take to incorporate human rights considerations into decision making and operations.  The webinar is being organized by the Alberta International Development Office but is open to all organizations across Canada.

Participants are invited to join the session in-person (Ottawa & Calgary) or by webinar. And for participants in Ottawa, we invite you to join presenter, Lloyd Lipsett of SHIFT, and officers at Global Affairs Canada for the session and a debrief afterward. Note that we have limited space in our boardroom in Ottawa so it will be on a first-come, first serve basis. Melissa Whellams of Avanzar will present in Calgary.

Date:   September 13, 2017

Time:  8:00 a.m. – 10:30 a.m. MST / 10:00 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. EDT

RSVP: RSVP to jay.smidt@international.gc.ca copying  Jihan.Sharifi@gov.ab.ca . Please indicate if you plan to attend by webinar or in person in Ottawa or Calgary.
