Womankind is pleased to present a recording of our ninth annual anti-human trafficking conference, Unpacking the Self in Labor Trafficking. This year, panelists unpacked their thoughts on culture not only as service providers but also as unique individuals. By doing so, we all reflected on the broader and more nuanced issues of how culture impacts our conceptions of work itself. During the second half of the conference, panelists provided participants with potential tools and promising practices to re-pack during the ongoing journey against labor trafficking and exploitation.

Thank you to the many panelists who joined and shared their wealth of experience with us. And a special thank you to our sponsor, EMCOR, for their continued generosity in supporting Womankind's work.
