vcheck global, modern slavery, corporate supply chain

Retired U.S. Ambassador at Large Luis C.deBaca joined RiskWatch for a discussion about modern slavery in corporate supply chains and what is being done to both combat and prevent it. Ambassador C.deBaca served five years in the Obama Administration to monitor and combat human trafficking before serving as the director of the U.S. Office for Sex Offender Monitoring, Apprehending, Registering, and Tracking. He retired from government service in 2017, however C.deBaca continues the battle for exploitation-free supply chains through his senior fellowship at Yale University’s Gilder Lehrman Center for the Study of Slavery, Resistance and Abolition.

C.deBaca has an extensive background both managing millions in grant funds for combating sexual abuse and slavery, and in negotiating for labor, law enforcement, and human rights advances across the U.S. In this episode of the podcast, Alex Sorin asks C.deBaca how companies can do their part to eliminate and prevent exploitation from their financial flows.
