I’m a senior-level business and human rights specialist, having provided human rights management expertise, including due diligence advice and services, across a number of sectors, in Europe, Asia, Africa and North America, in private and public sectors, and consultancy, contexts.
In my current role at Novartis, I lead a specialist team in the implementation of the Group’s global human rights strategy and workplans for ensuring respect for human rights.
Through this and previous roles, I have been engaged in a wide variety of on-the-ground due diligence procedures, including risk scoping, impact assessment, supplier auditing, corrective action plan development, training and capacity-building, and performance reporting.
As a former practicing lawyer, I bring a strong background in indigenous rights and environmental law to my business and human rights work. LinkedIn: www.linkedin.com/in/frankseier
