Continuously reviewing

The effectiveness of our actions can be assessed at different levels. In subsequent years of our five-year modern slavery program, we will undertake a robust assessment of the effectiveness of our actions, with these reviews reflecting the progressing program of work:

  1. Internal compliance checks, with checklists designed in conjunction with our academic experts.
  2. External sector engagement, such as via the Australian Universities Procurement Network (AUPN), to assess cross-university effectiveness, combined supplier influence and compare sector performance with our own.
  3. External stakeholder engagement to continue the dialogue with third parties in relation to risk identification and strategising in relation to identified risk.
  4. Affected labourers identified as being subject to modern slavery practices – how they are progressing after remediation steps have been taken. This is a longer-term goal.
