Rebecca Jinks of ACCSR Hosts GGA Conference, Melbourne
On Thursday the 18th of August the Global Goals Academy, ACCSR Senior Consultant Rebecca Jinks lead the UNAA Victoria hosted event on ‘Supply Chain & Human Rights’. This fabulous line up included Jonathan Dutton (Non-Executive Director at ACCSR), Andrew Miller (United Nations & Australian Air Force Logistician) and David McCallum.
The event was an exciting cross perspective from corporate management of the supply chain, and discussed how we grapple with Human Rights as an Australian consumer. The panel line up continued to discuss the difficulties faced by a Logistician with the UN in a country like Sudan, and considered the issue within the context of Sustainable Development Goal #8 and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the UN Global Compact.
The networking drinks afterwards were energetic, with lots of conversation around how to better or innovatively approach supply chain management with a mixed crowd of participants.
We can’t wait for the next event which will be focusing on SDG #11 – Sustainable Cities!
