Attorney Amy Lehr Speaks on United Nations Global Compact Indigenous Peoples’ Rights Webinar

March 20, 2014

Foley Hoag attorney Amy Lehr, a member of the firm’s Corporate Social Responsibility Practice, will help lead discussions in an upcoming webinar hosted by the U.N. Global Compact.  Ms. Lehr recently authored a Good Practice Note on indigenous peoples for the U.N. Global Compact.

The webinar, entitled “Business and Indigenous Peoples’ Rights: Emerging Trends, New Tools and Resources,” will focus on new resources to help companies understand the rights of indigenous people and ways businesses can respect and support them.  Highlighting the emerging trends and practical guidance contained in these resources, the discussion will also address stakeholder perspectives and company examples.

Lehr will be joined by Rebecca Adamson, First Peoples Worldwide; Natalia Gonchar, Sakhalin Energy; and Catherine Hunter, KPMG. The speakers will address these trends and tools, and discuss their relevance for business.

The United National Global Compact is a strategic policy initiative for businesses that are committed to aligning their operations and strategies with ten universally accepted principles in the areas of human rights, labor, environment and anti-corruption.
