A speaker and networking event all about supply chains and child labour. Our global supply chains allow labour practices and inequality to be made invisible. However, they also provide opportunities to connect with people around the world, and to bring opportunity. To address this, we need to understand how these supply chains create and eliminate poverty. We also need to address the cultural gaps that create spaces for misunderstanding.
We have three amazing guest speakers:
Tazim Lal is part of the Development Champion Speaker Bureau for the Aga Khan foundation. She is also the owner of her own social enterprise.
Anna Dammert is a Carleton University professor with expertise on child labour.
Finally, Emma Inns owns the local shop, Adorit boutique. As a business owner in our community, she faces supply chain problems firsthand as she attempts to run her business ethically.
Doors open at 7:30, with the first speaker at 7:50. Food and drinks available all night (additional drinks will be available for cash only purchase). There will also be various organizations present to speak to about your own involvement in this issue.
Your ticket purchase will include two free drinks. (You do not have to be 19+ to attend this event, we will have non-alcoholic options available).
20% of the proceeds will be donated to the Aga Khan Foundation.
Tickets sold at the door for $15
