The business working group recommended creating a coalition of businesses, organizations, and associations that are committed to reducing exploitation both internally and externally—internally through policies, training, and core business initiatives and externally through influencing business partners and members and through public leadership and awareness campaigns, such as a campaign to educate youth about the harms of sexual exploitation.
· 50% of all business employees the U.S. are working for companies that are working holistically to reduce sexual exploitation.
· 100% of Rotary Clubs are engaging employers and their communities on this issue.
In year one, the group is starting by laying the groundwork, building the coalition, creating the business case, creating a roadmap for employers and associations, identifying and engaging leaders within industries and associations, and partnering with Rotary clubs and other organizations.
Leading partners including Businesses Ending Slavery and Trafficking (BEST), the Global Business Coalition Against Trafficking (gBCAT), and Rotarians are prepared to spearhead this coalition.
