The programme was a great experience. It was very practical and the cases from the field showed how things work on the ground... the format was really easy to follow and interactive. I now feel confident to help companies who want to start the process of advancing human rights.

It was a great opportunity and I learned a lot. There were really effective tools and I liked the emphasis that Human Rights Due Diligence is a process of continuous improvement. I now feel more prepared to embed Human Rights into a corporate narrative for sustainability.
