ELEVATE Webinar: 2020 Southeast Asia Benchmark Report

  • March 16, 2021
  • 9.30-11 CET / 16.30-18.00 SGT

The UN Convention on the Rights of the Child is a bold international commitment that ensures every child has the right to a happy, just and prosperous future – and to have a say in the decisions that impact their lives.

What is the role of business in Southeast Asia in realizing this commitment to children’s rights, and how have efforts and performance in doing so changed over time?

Global Child Forum’s 2020 Southeast Asia Benchmark Report presents research conducted through 2020 that tracked approximately 250 of the region’s largest companies against 27 indicators, systematically assessing corporate organizational responses that impact children’s rights.

The report shows positive progress since the last Southeast Asian benchmark (2016), yet still lower than the global average. While Southeast Asia companies are more likely to engage in programs and collaborations focusing on children than their global peers, their overall lack of deeper understanding of children in relation to their core business keeps them from scoring above their peers globally.

This event will offer those bench-marked companies the opportunity to learn what their peers are doing, how they compare globally and how to start thinking of these issues in order to become a leader in children’s rights issues.

This webinar is intended for the 250 Southeast Asian companies that are included in Global Child Forum’s 2020 Southeast Asia Benchmark Report, as well as other businesses that are interested to learn more on their role in addressing and protecting children’s rights. Space is limited and subject to the organizer’s approval.


Please observe that this event is by invitation only.  If you have any questions, please email: Adrien.Askmo@globalchildforum.org
