View Programme

We are at a pivotal moment in the pursuit of ethical and responsible recruitment practices within our industries.

As global attention shifts towards the importance of Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), we must come together to discuss, deliberate, and devise strategies that not only comply with regulations but also honour our commitment to the dignity and rights of workers.

This symposium promises to be a gathering of minds and a platform for change, featuring esteemed speakers from various sectors including the Ministry of Human Resources, Immigration Department Malaysia, Labour Department Peninsular Malaysia, companies and civil society organisations.

This symposium aims to:

  • Explore the complexities and opportunities in fostering responsible recruitment
  • Discuss progress on responsible recruitment and employment policies and programs of government and business
  • Delve into the practices and principles of repayment of recruitment fees, with insights from leading organisations

We sincerely look forward to connecting with you and appreciate your support in collaborative action to make Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD) the industry norm across own operations and supply chains.
