Putting human rights due diligence into practice
11 March 2021
Our flagship learning programme equips practitioners with a thorough theoretical understanding of Human Rights Due Diligence (HRDD), as well as the expertise, tools and confidence to embed HRDD in organisations and supply chains.
About the Programme
The 10-week, interactive, virtual-learning programme combines expert tutorials, case studies and practical assignments across 5 fortnightly modules, supported by a set of bespoke HRDD tools, templates and guidance documents.
By the end of the training you will:
- Have in-depth knowledge of Human Rights theories, frameworks and standards
- Understand what is required of businesses with respect to Human Rights including recent legislative developments
- Be able to develop a Human Rights Due Diligence approach suitable for a business of any size
- Have practical experience identifying Human Rights risks and issues, prioritising where to take action, developing thoughtful action plans and engaging other people in the process
- Have a library of dedicated HRDD tools, templates and guidance
The course combines online webinars, group work and individual study. It requires 2-hours attendance on webinars every fortnight, with additional time for activities between modules. Participants also gain access to a closed LinkedIn group for peer-learning with other participants and with twentyfifty during and after the programme.
A pioneer in the field of Business and Human Rights, twentyfifty has been working with over 100 businesses for almost 20 years to embed corporate responsibility – and respect for Human Rights - into operations and supply chains. We have worked on the ground all over the world; with CEOs, with farmers, with factory managers. We don't just talk about responsible business, we help businesses to DO it; from the strategy to the ground.
Our training brings together the frameworks and tools we’ve devised, with our years of practical experience, to deliver world-class training for professionals from across business, development, and the public sectors. Our aim is to grow a thriving, global community of high-quality practitioners, able to take this exciting work to the next level of transformational possibility.
The programme will take place over 10 weeks with online group sessions every 2 weeks and practical exercises and assignments in between.
