Just Dessert: The International Labor Organization & Theo Chocolate
June 1, 2021 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
Kevin Cassidy, Director of the International Labour Organization (ILO) joins us for an exploration of this UN agency’s work —their history and mission; their role in combatting child labor (particularly in the Chocolate sector); and how they engage with global and domestic partners in both the public and private sector to fight exploitative practices. Following his presentation, Aaron Lindstrom, Chocolate Education and Outreach Manager and Monique Heineman, Brand Manager Social Impact offer a look inside Theo’s approach to conflict-free business practice —from farm to chocolate bar—and how they have modeled ethical sourcing, transparency, and socially responsible choices.
