James Stanbridge, a 13-year Microsoft veteran, is the Vice President and General Manager of Declara in Asia.

“I believe that education, learning, and sharing the initiatives and behaviors that work are the key to businesses contributing to eradicating trafficking in persons in 2015 and beyond.Not just on the margins of the formal economies, irregular employment or migration status, trafficking in people is present in mainstream, mainly private sector employment – that makes it our business.We need to work together as responsible business leaders with our partners in government and non profit sectors to shine the light of knowledge into every dark, murky corner of this evil trade. We can choose to stand up and fight this evil for the greater good of all mankind. I am making that choice – join me!”
