Event description

Description

This year, the Universal Declaration of Human Rights turns 70 years old. We at UNA-OKC took this to heart when creating our program for this event. We are happy to report that Dr. Evelyn Aswad will be our keynote speaker for this year's U.N. Day event. Her talk is entitled "Seventy Years Later: The Relevance of the UDHR in International Business Operations."

Evelyn Mary Aswad is a Professor of Law and the Herman G. Kaiser Chair in International Law at the University of Oklahoma College of Law. She is also the founder and director of the College’s Center for International Business & Human Rights, which is the first center of its kind at a U.S. law school. The Center’s mission is to prepare College of Law students to address the growing human rights challenges faced by U.S. companies operating abroad and to provide academic think tank expertise to influence positively contemporary international business and human rights issues. Professor Aswad also provides advice on human rights matters to the U.S. Department of State through her service on its Advisory Committee on International Law as well as its Stakeholder Advisory Board on matters of responsible business conduct abroad. From 2013-2017, she served on the Council of Europe’s Commission for Democracy Through Law, which is an expert body that issued opinions on a variety of human rights and rule of law matters with regard to countries in Europe and the Middle East. As a College of Law professor, she has also spoken about her human rights law research at venues ranging from the United Nations in Geneva to Stanford University in Palo Alto.

We are very much looking forward to hosting Dr. Aswad as she will be talking about intersection of human rights and international business operations. Please join us for lunch, a silent auction, an engaging discussion followed by a question and answer period. Food and refreshments will be provided.

If a scholarship is needed please email us at unausaokc@gmail.com. If you're able to donate more, please do, as we will use it to cover individuals who want to attend but require financial assistance. UNA OKC is dedicated to accessibility for all and no one will be turned away.

People can also pay cash/card at the door the day of the event.

We hope to see you there!
