This webinar will explore how companies can commit to supporting children’s rights by paying particular attention to the rights of young workers – who are above the minimum age of employment – as well as parents and caregivers. The discussion will look at what kind of support companies can provide to implement Principle 3, including provisions of safe working conditions for young workers, paid leave, breastfeeding and child care facilities, agile working hours, and the benefits of providing such support. The webinar will also include specific examples from business.

Co-hosted by the UN Global Compact, UNICEF and Save the Children, this webinar will present what children’s rights mean for business and how companies can respect and support children’s rights in their decisions, activities and relationships.
