The spotlight has been fixed on human trafficking and professional sports. The focus draws attention to a range of organized crimes capitalizing on global sporting events such as the World Cup or the Olympics — crimes such as illegal betting, money laundering, human trafficking and migrant smuggling. But what about the on-going impact of human trafficking on the private sector and companies that align with and are suppliers for professional and recreational sports? Explore the issues with experts managing global compliance as well as dealing with the front line effects of human trafficking and organized crime on the global sports industry.

This webinar is the fourth of the RESPECT Webinar Series 2015 Understanding Illicit Trade: Impact of Human Trafficking and Smuggling on the Private Sector”, looking at emerging issues surrounding human trafficking and promising anti-trafficking initiatives from the private sector.

This series is hosted by the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and Babson College’s Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery and through sponsorship by McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP..  Also supported by TraCCCthe Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center at George Mason University.

The webinar features a panel of experts from the private sector, academia, public policy, and the NGO community:

  • Monica Gorman, Vice President, Global Compliance, New Balance
  • Jean Claude Mbvoumin, Founder, Foot Solidaire
  • James Esson, PhD, Department of Geography, Loughborough University (moderator)
