Join us for this important workshop on Human Trafficking Awareness and Your Role in Preventing it.  Hosted by Columbia College and the South Carolina Restaurant and Lodging Association, this workshop is designed for hotel managers and supervisors but open to all whom are interested in learning more about the subject and want to help end human trafficking.  


Hotels are one of many venues that traffickers use to exploit their victims. As a result, hospitality industry leaders are increasingly recognizing the unique role they can play in preventing and disrupting this crime. 

Traffickers use hotel and motel rooms when setting up encounters between victims of sex trafficking and those individuals purchasing sex. Labor trafficking is also present in both the hotel industry's workforce and in the supply chain of its products. This criminal activity presents a great risk for the safety and security of hotel businesses, as well as legitimate hotel customers. Traffickers are capitalizing on the lack of awareness around this issue within the hotel industry. All too often, they continue to exploit their victims unchecked because staff, managers, and executives do not know what to look for.   


Workshop Objectives:


After completing this course, you should be able to:

  • Define human trafficking and commercial sexual exploration of people
  • Differentiate between labor and sex trafficking
  • Identify and recognize the signs of trafficking
  • React to a suspected incidence of trafficking at your property
  • Access local resources for assistance
This presentation is made possible through a partnership with the Education Institute of the American Hotel and Lodging Association and Marriott International.
