Annual Meeting

2021 ICAR Annual Meeting

Since our founding in 2010, ICAR has hosted members and partners from the Business and Human Rights and Corporate Accountability movement for an annual two-day conference in Washington, D.C. to freely explore new ideas, share tactics, and strategize for the future.

This year, ICAR came together virtually on October 18, 20, & 22, 2021. We were once again saddened we could not meet in person, but also pleased that moving to a virtual platform allowed us to connect with more of you.

While the ICAR Annual Meeting is typically an internally facing meeting for and by civil society organizations, in the spirit of making information accessible to the broader community, we’d like to make the following resources publicly available.
