Integrating Children’s Rights into Investment Decision Making

Fri, November 1, 2019

10:00AM-11:00AM ET

Toronto, ON

Children account for nearly one-third of the world’s population, and are future consumers, employees, decision-makers and investors. Incorporating the potential impact an investment has on respecting and supporting children’s rights into the investment decision-making process is therefore critical for mitigating risk and maximizing value. During this workshop, participants will learn about the potential child rights risks, the role of investors in identifying and mitigating these, and practical checklists and case studies.
