Benjamin Robb | Fletcher Kupe Leadership Scholar

Master of Commerce (Global Management and Innovation)

There is much to say when it comes to discussing and addressing all the horrors in the world today, but one of the most pressing issues of the 21st century is the tragedy that not only does slavery exist today, but there are more slaves now than at any other point in history.

I wish I could forget this reality, and so many of us do, but I can’t. Something must be done, and although there are many ways this issue is being addressed, the statistics of modern slavery are disheartening, to say the least. I believe this is an area that requires courageous leadership to do the right thing no matter the cost.

I know I have many more questions than answers, and I’m only beginning to see how the world works, but I hope that my vision for a world without slavery will not stay a mere dream.
