Breakout Session

Unbiasing Human Rights Due Diligence: The Case for Inclusive Approaches

  • Sessions and speakers are subject to change.
  • Sharing is caring

As we enter the decisive decade of the 2020s, the global inequality crisis is coming to light, where fair opportunities and justice are not guaranteed on the basis of gender, race, ethnicity, and sexual orientation. It is time to make human rights due diligence reflective of the way vulnerable groups are disproportionately affected—and intersectionality is key. How can businesses take an inclusive approach in human rights due diligence and use methodologies that help identify impacts specific and intersectional to different groups of rightsholders? This session will showcase how inclusive due diligence can and should be integrated into existing human rights methodologies—from context setting, to rightsholder identification, to data collection and rightsholder engagement strategies—to build inclusive strategies and transformative remedy.
