Each year the OECD hosts the Global Forum on Responsible Business Conduct where representatives from civil society, business, governments and trade unions meet to discuss and promote better business practices.
This year marked the 40th anniversary of the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, the government-backed standards for responsible business that cover a range of issues, including human rights, labour and the environment. It was an occasion for reflection about the progress and impact of the OECD Guidelines and plenty of ‘mid-life crisis’ gags.

This year marks our ten year anniversary. For ten years we’ve delivered justice for individuals and systemic change; for Indigenous peoples; for people seeking asylum and refugees; for LGBTI people, women and more.
Our work has had a profound impact on the Australian human rights landscape and support from people like you has been absolutely critical to our success.
Subaita and Moubani faced imminent deportation to Nauru. Terrified at the prospect of raising a child in an offshore camp we know is harmful and unsafe, Subaita asked for our help.
Thanks to everyone who helped make the 10 Years of Impact: Human Rights Dinners in Melbourne and Sydney such a success. Much fun was had and the events raised over $90,000. Thanks to all who either bid competitively in our fundraising auctions or generously made donations. This support is absolutely critical to our work.
We’ve been silent on injustice for too long
