Event Description:
Two experts in forced labor will give a seminar on modern-day slavery Monday in Bell Engineering Center.

The seminar is hosted by the newly formed IEEE Women in Engineering (WIE) student branch at the University of Arkansas. The seminar will take place from 2 p.m. 3 p.m. Feb. 12 in room 2273 of Bell Engineering Center, 800 W. Dickson St.

Michelle Palmer, co-founder of Tuesday Justice, and Doug Nystrom, director of human rights for Walmart, will discuss topics including global current-day slavery, slavery in the electronics industry, forced labor and responsible recruitment in the supply-chain industry and forced labor entrapment within migrant worker communities.

Palmer holds a master’s degree in Modern Slavery Studies from the Wilberforce Institute for the Study of Slavery and Emancipation at the University of Hull. As part of his responsible sourcing efforts with Walmart, Nystrom’s focus is addressing and eliminating recruitment fees for migrant workers.

The seminar is open to the public and there is no cost to attend.
