Modern slavery training modules

As a Catholic university committed to living the values of our mission, we have a particular role to play in honouring the inherent dignity of each human being. This not only includes those we work and engage with, but extends beyond our campuses, in acting to ensure fair treatment and decent working conditions for all people and avoiding practices which contribute to modern slavery and human trafficking.

In addition to including action on modern slavery in the ACU Strategic Plan 2020–2023, ACU is committed to the anti-modern slavery measures and requirements mandated by Australian government regulation, and through our involvement with various support associations to raise awareness and reduce the impact of modern slavery. These associations include the Australian Catholic Anti-Slavery Network (ACAN) and the Australian Universities Procurement Network (AUPN).

We now have two training modules which focus on understanding modern slavery and its relevance to business. All staff involved in purchasing activities and procurement decisions are undertaking these and they are also available to anyone else who is keen to grow their understanding.

Developed by the Anti-Slavery Taskforce, Catholic Archdiocese of Sydney, and ACAN, these highly interactive modules provide a comprehensive overview of why it is important to manage modern slavery risk.

Topics the modules explore include:

  • What is modern slavery?
  • Modern slavery in supply chains
  • The intersection of business and modern slavery
  • The requirements of the Modern Slavery Act
