Human trafficking affects 40,3 million people worldwide and earns traffickers $150 billion a year. Despite the prevalence of human trafficking, most brands, companies, and business associations don't address it. Randstad USA and Alliance for Freedom, Restoration & Justice will host a virtual panel on human trafficking.

Randstad USA and Alliance for Freedom, Restoration & Justice will bring together top business and philanthropic leaders for a virtual “In Plain Sight” panel discussion on January 20 from 12:00-1:30 pm EST. 

The event will include discussions on how organizations can integrate trafficking into their social responsibility programs, the importance of offering career development for people engaged in the justice system and the benefits of offering employment opportunities for victims of human trafficking. Discussion topics will also cover why human trafficking is an issue for business organizations, how businesses can train their workforce to assess potential trafficking risks and ways to develop a policy framework to mitigate trafficking across supply chains. 

“Human trafficking is among the world's fastest growing criminal enterprises, affecting millions of victims around the world every year. Employers and business have an opportunity to play a pivotal role in the fight against human trafficking, whether that be through corporate responsibility programs or engaging with vulnerable communities to offer career development and employment opportunities,”

said Keith Brown, Director, Community Impact.

“We hope this panel discussion will encourage ongoing conversations about the actions that can be taken within communities, workplaces and even in the global economy to combat this growing human rights crisis.” 

Panelists for the In Plain Sight event will feature some of the country’s top corporate and philanthropic leaders, including Bob Rodgers, President and CEO of Street Grace; Nikki Clifton, President of the UPS Foundation; Meg Taylor, Chief Litigation and Employment Counsel for Delta; Ashleigh Chapman, President and CEO of the Alliance for Freedom, Restoration & Justice; Hal Cato, Chief Executive Officer of Thistle Farms, and Sean Hosman, Founder of Persevere Now. 

The event will also include remarks from Audra Jenkins, Chief Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Randstad North America and Jennifer Dial, Analyst and Community Impact Hire Hope Program Lead, Randstad North America. The panel will be moderated by Crystal Crowley, Senior Diversity and Community Impact Manager, Randstad North America.
