Business and the Fight Against Human Trafficking

Join Microsoft, the Global Business Coalition Against Human Trafficking (GBCAT) and Tech Against Trafficking (TAT) for a conversation about two business-led initiatives tackling human trafficking: GBCAT and TAT .

This lunch-time event will bring together interested stakeholders from companies, NGOs, foundations, academia and law enforcement based in Washington State. The event will kick-off with an engaging presentation by Microsoft, a founding member of both groups, on some of its efforts to address human trafficking through the use of innovative technology. The event will also include a presentation on the Interactive Map for Business of Anti-Trafficking Organizations, a new publicly available resource developed by GBCAT and its partners. This resource is the first of its kind to identify anti-human trafficking organizations and initiatives that are partnering with businesses to combat human trafficking around the world.

A light lunch will be provided.
