How can investors engage with companies to prevent and address human rights abuses? RIAA's Human Rights Working Group is an initiative to support members in their stewardship responsibilities respecting human rights in their business operations and their portfolio of companies.

The Human Rights Working Group is a way for RIAA members to come together in the interests of building stronger stewardship capabilities through more deeply understanding human rights, being able to identify and comment on due diligence processes and understand investor and company roles in remedying human rights abuses and violations.

This meeting will start with a discussion on mandating due diligence in the EU, key takeaways on the Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence Directive (CSDDD) and insights on mandatory Human Rights and Environmental Due Diligence (mHREDD). To help us explore this topic, we are excited to welcome Rebecca DeWinter-Schmitt, Associate Director of the Investor Alliance for Human Rights who focuses on connecting institutional investors and their allies with the tools and strategies to promote human rights and responsible business conduct.

This will then be followed by a series of industry updates and insights from the group's subgroups including an update on the AI (Artificial Intelligence) and Human Rights Investor Toolkit and the Conflict subgroup. This will also provide the opportunity for discussion and input on what the working group should be focusing on for the next workplan. We will also hear a brief update about RIAA's Policy work.
