Webinar: Fighting Supply Chain Corruption

This webinar offers how to develop a four step approach to identifying potential areas of corruption and mitigating these supply chain risks.

Audience: Open industry. All apparel and footwear industry professionals, regardless of AAFA membership, are encouraged to participate.


Corruption is one of the most common buzzwords in supply chain management. It affects how we do business, where we do business, and with whom we work. We know that corruption doesn’t just hurt the countries we operate in, but our own operations. Yet sometimes it can be hard to know where to actually begin in developing a program. Tony Pelli, Security Supply Chain Risk Advisor and Philippa Williams, Social and Security Risk Advisor will take an interactive approach to find out how you would respond to potential “corrupt” practices within your supply chain and develop a four step approach to identifying potential areas of corruption and mitigating these risks.

Attendees will hear about:
  • What effective anti-bribery and anti-corruption programs look like.
  • How to identify high-risk suppliers for corruption and bribery threats.
  • How to develop assessments that are more than just a tick box approach.
