Built around ETI’s Human Rights Due Diligence Framework, this three-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 three face-to-face sessions take place over 10 weeks in February/March 2018 and are complimented with peer group working on extension activities to ensure delegates can start applying learning and insight into their business from day one. The programme is based on practical, engaging discussion, group work and focussed information sessions.

Course aim

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 both inside and outside the workshop and build better understanding of what other organisations are doing and gain peer-level contacts in other companies.

This course has definitely helped me to critically review and improve my approach to developing a human rights due diligence framework.

An excellent course. Very practical, with a great mix of informative and interactive sessions.
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.
