    This daytime panel discussion will focus on the cutting-edge issues facing government regulators, in-house and outside counsel, human rights advocates, and other practitioners in the areas of due diligence and corporate compliance. Enhanced due diligence procedures are essential for companies to ensure they have resilient and ethical supply chains that do not contribute to human rights abuses such as child and forced labor.  This conversation with legal and policy experts will be off-the-record and, therefore, it is sure to be enlightening to all who work, advocate, or are interested in these vital issues.

    The panel, moderated by Nathan Lankford, a Miller & Chevalier Associate, will feature:

    • Bennett Freeman, Senior Advisor, BSR (Business for Social Responsibility)
    • Kenneth J. Kennedy, Senior Policy Advisor, Forced Labor Programs, U.S. Department of Homeland Security Immigration and Customs Enforcement
    • Alice Kipel, Executive Director, Regulations and Rulings, Office of Trade, U.S. Customs and Border Protection
    • Amy Lehr, Associate, Foley Hoag LLP
    • Genevieve Taft-Vazquez, Global Director, Workplace Accountability Department, The Coca-Cola Company
