What’s on at the Thomson Reuters Foundation

This month at the Thomson Reuters Foundation: we host a packed breakfast event at Davos to discuss slavery in supply chains; we take home a UN award for coverage of humanitarian issues; we announce a new award for coverage of food sustainability issues - with €10,000 up for grabs - and we unveil Trust Conference, Putting the Rule of Law Behind Human Rights.

This newsletter keeps you up to date with the latest news, events, and developments from our key programmes: free legal assistance, media development and training, coverage of the world’s under-reported stories, and Trust Conference

Global Leaders Attend our Davos Breakfast Event

We brought the discussion about fighting forced labour in corporate supply chains to business leaders and policy-makers in Davos. Monique Villa, actress Gillian Anderson, and chairman of White & Case Hugh Verrier delivered keynote speeches. On our panel were senior executives from Unilever and Hewlett Packard Enterprise, as well as Nick Kristof and Mike Posner. Watch highlights here.

Announcing Trust Conference

Trust Women was founded in 2012 to take action on women's rights and slavery. As we’ve grown, we have listened to all of you, and realised that together we have created a movement that goes way beyond just women’s rights. It’s about men, women and children’s rights. And it’s, more than ever, about taking action - that’s why we’re announcing that Trust Women has become Trust Conference, Putting the Rule of Law Behind Human Rights. Find out more.
