What's on at the Thomson Reuters Foundation

This month at the Thomson Reuters Foundation: we gear up to the launch of our latest initiative, the Stop Slavery Award; we look ahead to this year’s Trust Forum Asia; and we sum up 2015 with our Annual Report.

This newsletter keeps you up to date with the latest news, events, and developments from our key programmes: free legal assistancemedia development and trainingcoverage of the world’s under-reported stories, and Trust Women.

Rewarding Integrity and Courage

Forced labour destroys the lives of 36 million people. Can corporations play a role in the fight against slavery? We think so. This is why, on Monday, we will be unveiling the Stop Slavery Award, a brand new initiative to recognise corporations going above and beyond to eradicate forced labour from their supply chains. Winners of the prestigious prize – an artwork by Turner Prize winner Anish Kapoor - will be selected by high-profile thought leaders. Do you know of a company taking real action to fight slavery? Share the news and help us create a virtuous cycle to put the business of human trafficking out of business.

A year of growth

Did you know that in 2015 our media development programme trained more than 1,500 journalists around the world? Also last year, TrustLaw forged its 2,000th connection,and our editorial team prepared the ground for two innovative global partnerships. These are just a few highlights from our just-released Annual Report featuring the impact of our four programmes, our partners and our people.
