Event Description

Modern slavery is the severe exploitation of other people for personal or commercial gain. This institutionalized and systemic slavery is happening all around us, but often just out of sight, and most of us are unaware of its magnitude and gravity. People can become entrapped making our clothes, serving our food, picking our crops, working in factories, or working in households as cooks, cleaners, or nannies. What can we do to end slavery in our current society?

Join us for a panel discussion about modern slavery in our region with speakers from World Vision, Walk Free, MOTIF and Transparency International New Zealand.

Chair: James Bushell - MOTIF

Becky Kingi - World Vision
Elise Gordon - Walk Free
Tod Cooper - Transparency International New Zealand

This session sponsored by The Brian Picot Chair of Ethical Leadership (Victoria University of Wellington) and Transparency International New Zealand is part of the University's annual Leadership Week - a showcase of the transformative thinking occurring at the University and beyond. Leadership Week is a collaboration between the University's two leadership programmes (the Wellington International Leadership Programme (WILP) & the Wellington Plus Programme), and the Brian Picot Chair of Ethical Leadership.
