Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Australia: Qantas confirms commitment to social justice issues, including LGBTI, indigenous and women’s rights

"Qantas will continue to campaign on social justice issues", 9 May 2019

Qantas chief Alan Joyce has vowed the airline will continue to campaign on social issues, saying its stance has been vindicated by strong public support.

Mr Joyce led the airline’s highly visible promotion of same-sex marriage during the 2017 plebiscite and says Qantas’ brand is stronger than it’s ever been, a testament his public position worked for the company.
