On April 12, Human Analytics’ Rebecca DeWinter-Schmitt will be speaking on a business and human rights panel at the 25th anniversary celebration of the Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law. Rebecca is pro bono Director of the Human Rights in Business Program at the Center. The panel entitled, Business Challenges and Human Rights: The Case of Apple, will discuss issues faced by the company such as ensuring users’ right to privacy, the sourcing of electronic components containing minerals mined in conflict zones, and the manufacturing of electronic equipment in factories implicated in workplace abuses, as well as Apple’s response to these challenges. Other panels include international standards in the fight against torture, promoting human rights in the U.S., and advancing human rights through impact litigation. The event is free and open to the public, but registration is required.
