Julia Ormond

Founder & President, ASSET

Julia Ormond is the Founder and President of ASSET, an advocacy non-profit that works to create a market economy to end enslavement. ASSET is the source, co-sponsor, and convener of the global Transparency in Supply Chains (TISC) Act that was authored by Senator Darrell Steinberg and passed by Governor Schwarzenegger in 2010 in California. The TISC Act CA came into effect in 2012. ASSET went on to collaborate with the UK charity UNSEEN to upgrade and include TISC in the UK Modern Slavery Act that passed in 2015. ASSET is currently working on legally defined, credible, agnostic evaluations of global corporate disclosures, evaluating corporate transparency and performance around human rights, social impact, and anti-enslavement with Development International. ASSET is taking the evaluation outcomes into consumer interfaces, so that with every dollar that we spend, we can each vote for the world we want.
