82 In 2020, we developed a steering committee for the Modern Slavery working group to drive more robust governance around this topic . Grievance mechanism We know that even as we work to respect human rights, adverse impacts sometimes occur . That’s why our internal reporting mechanisms are designed to allow for concerns to be raised and addressed . These include our EthicsLine, a service that enables anonymous reporting of concerns and violations, including those related to human rights . Employees at any location in the world can reach the EthicsLine by phone or online — 24 hours a day, seven days a week . We encourage and expect our employees to speak up and raise concerns via the confidential EthicsLine, to their managers, or to our human resources team . We also expect non-employees to speak up, raise concerns, and report any suspicions or evidence of human rights abuses, via their employer, Wells Fargo supply chain management, Global Non-employee Program Office, or the EthicsLine . In addition, we have in place a Security Response Center — a companywide service that employees and non-employees around the world can contact on a 24/7 basis to report a range of security incidents . Human rights training Human rights training is an important part of our overall ESRM training . Each year, employees complete the first two modules of our diversity and inclusion learning curriculum, which address aspects of human rights as they relate to discrimination . We also provide a number of trainings on Modern Slavery . Collaborating with others and setting human rights standards Many human rights challenges are systemic and can’t be solved by any single actor . Therefore, we have to work together in collaboration with others, both to learn from them and share what we do . For example, we participated in Business for Social Responsibility’s (BSR) Human Rights Working Group * — a cross-sector, collaborative initiative that helps more than 40 global companies implement the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) . We were previously part of the Thun Group of Banks . This informal group of bank representatives works to understand how the UNGPs can be practically implemented within the financial sector . Currently, we are part of the Financial Institutions Practitioners Cycle led by SHIFT, a group of human rights subject matter experts who discuss various human rights issues . We also participate on the Social Risk Working Group of the Equator Principles Association , * which facilitates dialogue on human rights and other Performance trends can be found in the Wells Fargo ESG Goals and Performance Data (PDF) . *We do not control this website .
