The Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery

At Babson, we believe that business solutions and entrepreneurship education provide powerful methods of solving societal problems.

Human trafficking and modern slavery takes many forms, ranging from sexual exploitation to illegal organ trade and forced labor. Babson supports entrepreneurs of all kinds who are making a positive impact around the world. By hosting th​e Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery, we are able to take advantage of our global network, extensive academic resources, and real-world business expertise to produce practical entrepreneurial solutions, ideas, and innovations to help end modern slavery and promote human rights.

Our mission is twofold:

  1. Bring together students and influential business people; corporate, NGO, and governmental partners; and human trafficking and modern slavery activists from around the world in order to develop innovative approaches for advancing human freedom.
  2. Educate and activate current and next-generation business leaders in the fight against human trafficking and modern slavery.
