Share Building Bridges: The Business Case for Indigenous Peoples' Rights

Event Details

Businesses are increasingly recognizing that respect and support for Indigenous Peoples is a key enabler of long-term value creation and sustainable enterprise. Indigenous Peoples' rights are not always well understood by businesses, yet constructive relationships with Indigenous Peoples in the workplace, marketplace and communities are vital to business success and sustainability in many contexts around the world, especially for businesses operating on or near Indigenous lands and communities.


Hosted by the UN Global Compact, First Peoples Worldwide, and Future 500, this workshop provides companies with guidance on strengthening genuine engagement with Indigenous communities, and highlights resources that can be leveraged to improve relationships and make the business case to senior management and boards about the importance of respecting Indigenous Peoples’ rights. The workshop will facilitate peer-to-peer solutions sharing and highlight best practices from select companies.

Coinciding with the Thirteenth Session of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues (UNPFII), workshop attendees may have the opportunity to observe UNPFII activities and meet key stakeholders. Any company representative interested in learning and sharing about establishing leadership roles in respecting and supporting Indigenous Peoples’ rights is welcome to attend.
