6:30 AM - 7:20 AM Wellness-Advanced Core Bootcamp (ACBC)

ACBC is a 50 minute, two day a week advanced conditioning program that focuses on reaching levels of fitness beyond what a standard Boot Camp will typically yield. Many of the techniques are direct from Kevin Kearns’ "Burn With Kearns" MMA (Mixed Martial Arts) conditioning program. Instructors Sonny Romano and Christy Bishal will utilize many of the training techniques used by professional UFC/MMA fighters. The class is a challenge but a lot of fun and as a bonus attendees will learn the basics of defending themselves while they get into tremendous physical condition.

Who:   Any Babson employee who is looking to take their workout to the next level. 

When: Mondays and Wednesdays from 6:30-7:20am beginning on Monday, January 5, 2015 and ending on Wednesday, May 13, 2015.

How:   Participants may attend class as often as they would like.  Those interested in participating should register through the Babson Calendar Advanced Bootcamp event (we would like to be able to notify participants of any changes or cancellations that may arise).

10:00 AM - 12:00 PM Webinar: Labour Exploitation and the Construction Industry
The Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and Babson College present
 
If You Build It, They Will Come: Labour Exploitation and the Construction Industry
 
Wednesday, 15th April  2015
10:00 am- 12:00 pm EDT and 4:00-6:00 pm CET

 
According to the International Labour Organization and other sources, labour exploitation currently makes up the largest percentage of those who are trafficked. Some of the world's greatest landmarks and feats of agriculture have been built through exploited labour. Before 2022, more than 4000 migrant workers will have died in the preparation of stadiums and venues for the World Cup in Qatar.

What is already being done by the construction industry to develop and implement anti-trafficking measures to prevent and prohibit labour trafficking? What can be done in the future? And how can the private sector and anti-trafficking actors work together to create effective interventions in today's global economy?
 
This webinar is the fifth in a series entitled “The Private Sector and the Future of Illicit Trade: Next Generation Human Trafficking and Smuggling Challenges” looking at emerging issues surrounding human trafficking and promising anti-trafficking initiatives from the private sector. This series is hosted by the Global Initiative against Transnational Organized Crime and Babson College's Initiative on Human Trafficking and Modern Slavery and through sponsorship by McKenna Long & Aldridge LLP.  Also supported by TraCCC, the Terrorism, Transnational Crime and Corruption Center at George Mason University.

The webinar will feature a panel of experts from the private sector, academia, public policy, and the NGO community (to be announced) including:
  • Houtan Homayounpour, Senior Programme and Operations Officer, Special Action Programme Combatting Forced Labour, International Labour Organization (ILO)
  • Ray Jureidini, PhD, Professor, Migration Ethics and Human Rights Center for Islamic Legislation and Ethics, Hamad Bin Khalifa University, Doha, Qatar
  • Declan Croucher, Director, Verite
