This year the 14th annual Engaging Business Forum, hosted by The Coca-Cola Company and sponsored by the International Organization of Employers, the United States Council for International Business, and the US Chamber of Commerce, will take place October 13th and 14th.  We are excited to announce that after 2 years of hosting the forum as a virtual event due to the COVID 19 pandemic, this year’s event will once again be in person at The Coca- Cola Company’s headquarters in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Forum continues to be one of the preeminent business and human rights conferences, where business leaders and experts from civil society, trade unions and governments hold candid discussions on the challenges faced by businesses in demonstrating respect for human rights throughout their value chains.  This year the conference will look at the Future of Responsible Business Conduct – how expectations on business are changing in a world of increasing human rights regulations and geo-political challenges.

We have pulled together an innovative agenda with panels and break-out sessions led by global thought leaders to tackle the most pressing questions for the future of business and human rights, including:

Law – Where is it going in the human rights space and what does it mean for business

Metrics – Measuring impact in a principled and practical way

Downstream – How businesses should master the next frontier of human rights due diligence

Empowerment – The role of business in driving social equity beyond the workplace

Benchmarks – The future of investor and stakeholder assessment of corporate sustainability

Climate – The imperative and challenges of considering climate risk through a human rights lens

Positive Rights – How should companies practically think about the challenge of addressing socio-economic rights

Remedy and Grievance Mechanisms – How to best uncover harm and support effective remedy collaborations

As is always the case, we have arranged our two days together in a way to maximize attendee opportunities for networking – both seeing old friends and making new ones.  While we will livestream some of the Forum’s sessions for those who cannot attend in person, we hope that most of you will be able to join us in Atlanta for the conference – either as a return attendee or a first-time participant.
