WASHINGTON, D.C., Aug. 29 /CSRwire/ - On September 5-6, the United Way Center on Human Trafficking & Slavery is hosting the 2017 Business Leaders Forum to Combat Human Trafficking in Washington, DC. Currently, there are more than 20 million victims of human trafficking around the world, and businesses are increasingly engaged in the fight against human trafficking. iPoint is delighted to be a partner of this important event, which provides insights into what the business community is doing to fight human trafficking.

The convention offers different panels, such as:

  • Supply Chain Strategies that work

Julia Ormond, actress and founder of the Alliance to Stop Slavery and End Trafficking (ASSET), will deliver a keynote on “The Imperative to Act”.
