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:
- Internal compliance checks, with checklists designed in conjunction with our academic experts.
- 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.
- External stakeholder engagement to continue the dialogue with third parties in relation to risk identification and strategising in relation to identified risk.
- 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.
