Business and Engagement Lead, the Walk Free initiative of the Minderoo Foundation

Serena Grant leads business engagement activities at Walk Free, an international human rights organisation working to combat all forms of modern slavery. Focused on business & human rights, Serena engages business, government and civil society leaders to improve business practices to eradicate forced labour in global supply chains. She also leads Walk Free’s work as the Secretariat of the Bali Process Government and Business Forum. The Forum convenes business and government leaders across the Indo Pacific region to tackle modern slavery, with a mandate to improve supply chain transparency, ethical recruitment and worker protections. Serena’s experience across both the corporate and development sectors has instilled a keen interest in corporate social responsibility and the power of business to solve complex social issues. Prior to joining Walk Free, Serena worked at the Thomson Reuters Foundation in London where she was the Director of TrustLaw, leading a global team to deliver the Foundation’s pro bono legal service that connects NGOs and social enterprises with law firms around the world. She also led several initiatives focused on combating modern slavery, and supported the Trust Conference, a global forum focused on modern slavery and human rights. Prior to this, Serena worked as a corporate lawyer at international law firms in Tokyo, Sydney and London.
