Built around ETI’s Human Rights Due Diligence Framework and the UNGPs, this two-day professional-development programme is a practical, interactive way to develop the professional skills and knowledge needed to identify, understand and act on human rights risks.
The face-to-face sessions are based on engaging discussion, group work exercises, real life examples and focused information sessions.
Participants will gain a deep insight into the different elements of Human Rights Due Diligence and leave equipped with the knowledge and tools to identify and manage human rights impacts in their companies. They will interact with peers from other organisations and build better understanding of practical strategies and techniques for addressing human rights risks in their own operations and in their supply chains.
This course has definitely helped me to critically review and improve my approach to developing a human rights due diligence framework.

Responsible Sourcing Manager, John Lewis
I found the course invaluable in order to step back and allow the space to think about how we conduct due diligence, what we are doing well, what affect we’re having and, crucially, to consider how we can have more impact.
