BY INVITATION ONLY
[Please note that the webcast will begin at approx 12:30 PM.]
The Internet sector frequently finds itself at the intersection of global business and human rights. Please join us for this luncheon workshop at the Carnegie Council, in which we'll ask: How can companies respond responsibly to new human rights challengeswithout undermining their profits?
To help discover answers, Ebele Okobi-Harris, director of Yahoo's Business and Human Rights program, will share Yahoo's experience in the Taiwan market and how it informs the company's approach to human rights. Abbi Tatton, former CNN reporter and current YouTube manager of Global Communications, will discuss YouTube's human rights policies regarding videos posted to the site.
Both corporations work closely with non-governmental organizations to develop their human rights responses. Rachel Davis, advisor on the UN project to write Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, is now working to help corporations put the principles in practice. Susan Morgan, executive director of Global Network Initiative, uses the Guiding Principles to inform a set of principles geared directly at technology companies.
Workshops for Ethics in Business is a monthly interactive series to promote best standards in business ethics.
Julia Taylor Kennedy will moderate this event.
