A year after the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the COVID-19 outbreak to be a global pandemic, the virus continues to hold its grips on daily life. Early months of the pandemic were characterized by quick business decisions, giving little time to properly take into account human rights risks, resulting in negative impacts in particular for already vulnerable people and communities.

Building on insights and lessons learned over the past year, this webinar with experts from the Institute for Business and Human Rights (IHRB) and the World Benchmarking Alliance (WBA) discusses what businesses can do to respect human rights in the context of a prolonged COVID-19 reality.
