Human Rights Due Diligence Peer Learning & Networking Group
With the HRDD Peer Learning & Networking Group we would like to provide a platform for regular exchange among business and human rights professionals in Switzerland and Liechtenstein. Starting in May 2022, we will meet every three months for a virtual (After-) Lunch Videocall with informal discussions on questions, learnings, insights and challenges with peers.
This peer learning group is co-facilitated by focusright and organized in cooperation with the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA) and the State Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO). It is part of measure 3 “Promotion of UN Guiding Principles” of the Swiss National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights 2020-2023.
