Introduction

Trust Women is more than just a conference. It’s a fast-growing movement to put the rule of law behind women’s rights through concrete action.

The annual conference brings together global corporations, lawyers, and pioneers in the field of women's rights to take action and forge tangible commitments to empower women.

In 2013, participants committed to 32 key actions to help empower women globally, including plans to create a global human trafficking hotline and a legal network to end forced sterilization.

This year, the Trust Women conference will take place 18-19 November in London. If you are passionate about women's rights and want to attend an event where you can finally commit to real action; if you are a company investing in women's rights and diversity; if you want solutions to protect your brand from the risks posed by human trafficking within your supply chain; then Trust Women is the must-attend event for you.
