Webinar

An Instrument of Change
Global Child Forum Webinar

What did we learn after benchmarking close to 900 of the world’s largest corporations against 27 children’s rights indicators and sifting through the data? 

Quite a lot actually. 

We are offering a short introductory webinar to share our key findings and explore what children’s rights in business looks like in 2021. This webinar is open to companies we have benchmarked, companies we have not benchmarked and any organization with an interest in promoting children’s rights in business.  

This is the Global Child Forum’s 3rd Global Benchmark and by far our most ambitious to date. Join us and our Benchmarking partner, Boston Consulting Group, to learn more! 

The webinar will be held at the following times to suit multiple time-zones.  

  • 14 dec 2021, 9.00 CET: 16:00 UTC +8 
  • 16 dec 2021, 16.00 CET; 10.00 EST (UTC-5)
