PRESSRELEASE - Åpenhet wins international award

Åpenhet, in collaboration with the international Minderoo Foundation and Australian based Anthologie, has been honoured with the Bronze Award by The Anthem Awards for their contribution to the development of the 2023 Global Slavery Index Platform (Walk Free/Minderoo).


The Bronze Award, within the Human & Civil Rights category, presented by The Anthem Awards, recognizes the outstanding collaborative efforts of Åpenhet, Anthologie, and the client; Walk Free in creating this groundbreaking platform for the Global Slavery Index.

"We are immensely proud to receive the Bronze Award for our work on the Global Slavery Index platform," says Kleng Bråtveit, CEO at Åpenhet. "This recognition is a testament to our commitment to leveraging technology for social impact and driving positive change. The real reward for us, however, lies in the praise received from our client, Walk Free, and the Minderoo Foundation. Knowing that we have provided them with a powerful tool to combat slavery is the ultimate validation of our efforts.”

Global Slavery Index (GSI) Platform

The GSI platform offers a comprehensive and interactive analysis of modern slavery, presenting over 25,000 data points across 160 countries. It provides estimates on prevalence, government responses, and vulnerability factors related to modern slavery. The platform presents this wealth of information as an interactive experience, allowing users to seamlessly explore the large framework of data in a digestible and engaging way.

The presentation and experience of the data changes depending on whether viewing global or specific data, enabling global stakeholders to utilise it for tailored advocacy. Together, the team aimed to transform this intricate data into accessible visualisations and digital products, reigniting the movement to eradicate modern slavery.

"The platform has completely changed the way people interact with our data," says Elly Williams, Research and Targeting Specialist at Walk Free. "Our partners in the government, business and not-for-profit sectors have all commented on how useful this platform is for their work to end modern slavery, and we now lean heavily on this tool in our advocacy and engagement. The platform is not just a repository of information, it is an engagement tool, a call to action, an instrument for change."
