Women in Compliance breakfast briefing | Human rights and compliance: a conversation with Moira Oliver


We are delighted to invite you to our breakfast briefing on human rights and compliance, on Tuesday 9 July 2019 with guest speaker, Moira Oliver, Head of Policy and Chief Counsel Human/Digital Rights at BT.

Moira is responsible for BT's human rights programme, a rapidly developing area of compliance, in the UK and internationally. BT faces an interesting set of challenges in this area. Not only does it have to safeguard customer data and freedom of expression, it also has to work with law enforcement agencies to help combat terrorism and organised crime. BT, like other broadcasters, also has to consider how to cover sporting events without breaching people's human rights.

Moira will be talking to Rebecca Palser, one of the founders of the Women in Compliance group, about the lessons learned as she developed BT's human rights programme. It will be a wide-ranging discussion, with the opportunity for Q&A. We are keen for you to participate as much as possible -if there are any areas that you would like us to address please let us know ahead of the event.  

Due to limited availability and high demand for our events, please register your interest early.
