A year later: HACE nominated for the Stop Slavery Award 2021

A lot can happen in a year!

This month HACE is celebrating its first anniversary. From its launch in February 2020 to an international growing team, to a new website and most recently having the privilege to be nominated for the Stop Slavery Award 2021. HACE has been shortlisted for the top 5 SMEs in the world working on the anti-slavery efforts.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation launched the Stop Slavery Award in 2015 to recognise companies who can be considered “best-in-class” based on the policies and the processes they have in place to limit the risk of slavery in their supply chain and operations, as well as the role they are playing as key agents in the global fight against slavery.

Since then, the Stop Slavery Award has expanded to recognise the wide range of actors dedicated to ending modern slavery and human trafficking. The eight award categories recognise innovators in this space, impactful collaborations between sectors, grassroots organisations, journalists raising awareness of this issue, as well as small and medium-sized businesses.

HACE has come a long way since its start and is looking to accomplish more in the years to come. In less than one year, HACE has set research and report projects in Bangladesh, Tanzania, Nigeria and India. In July 2020, HACE established facilitations with the National Bureau of Statistics and produced a detailed extensive report on Education in Nigeria.

The company has also developed academic partnerships with the University of Salford and the University of Manchester. Additionally, HACE’s Managing Director and Founder, Eleanor Harry, was selected in November 2020, to be a sub-group leader for the Delta 8.7 (UN University) to write policy guides for the “What works for SDG 8.7”.

HACE looks forward to continuing its work and services to bring real and impactful change to a future where children are not exposed to the negative impacts of child labour and putting an end to all forms of modern slavery involving children.

Winners for the Stop Slavery Award 2021 will be announced on February 25, from 1 pm (GMT), the ceremony will be held online. Until then, follow us for more updates on HACE and the Stop Slavery Award 2021
