On September 20, 2011, GNI Executive Director Susan Morgan spoke at “Yahoo! and YouTube: Balancing Human Rights and Business” at the Carnegie Council in New York.

The lunchtime Ethics in Business workshop also featured Ebele Okobi-Harris, Director of Business and Human Rights at Yahoo Inc. and a GNI Board Member, as well as YouTube’s Global Communications Manager Abbi Tatton, and Rachel Davis, an attorney who served as an adviser to Professor John Ruggie, the Special Representative of the UN Secretary-General for Business and Human Rights.

The discussion touched upon real world examples facing companies as they work to understand and uphold international human rights standards in contexts of fast-moving technological and political change.
