Liability, Duty of Care, and Senior Leader Responsibilities
August 20 @ 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm UTC+0$35
This three hour session will give senior-most decision makers (CEOs, Directors) a strong orientation to legal Duty of Care within the international humanitarian sector. It will highlight the role that these individuals hold on behalf of their organizations for meeting this requirement; it will highlight some of the complexities of ensuring staff duty of care in humanitarian settings (including COVID 19 contexts at HQ and field levels) ; and it will present a duty of care model which participants may adapt to their own organizations to strengthen their duty of care for their staff.
This session will be jointly facilitated by Melanie Murphy, CARE Canada’s Safety and Security Lead, and Paul Willetts, a founding partner of Vey Willetts LLP based in Ottawa. Questions will be encouraged.
