Trust Conference Online - 2020

to
Trust Conference is the Thomson Reuters Foundation’s flagship annual event and a leading human rights forum. Normally held in the heart of London each year, the conference brings together some 600 delegates from diverse sectors representing more than 60 countries. Previous speakers have included President and CEO of TIME’S UP, Tina Tchen, Executive Editor of The New York Times, Dean Baquet, and disability and design advocate, Sinéad Burke. This year, the forum has moved online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. 

The current global health crisis will define the course of our lives for generations. Join us for a free day’s event packed with panel discussions, side sessions, speaker spotlights, documentaries and networking opportunities as we examine just how the pandemic has deepened social and economic inequalities, amplified threats to media freedom and will have lasting consequences for protecting and promoting human rights. 

This is your opportunity to hear insights and share expertise with those at the forefront of reshaping our recovery in a post-COVID world.
