Audrey Roofeh is the Director of Advisory Services at the Polaris Project in Washington, D.C. The Project is a major international non-profit advocacy group that seeks to disrupt the conditions that allow human trafficking to thrive in our society. A leader in the global fight to eradicate modern slavery and restore freedom to survivors, Polaris uses a comprehensive model that includes client services, policy advocacy, advisory services, a national human trafficking resource center, a data analysis program as well as a variety of global programs.
As Director of Advisory Services, Professor Roofeh works with businesses, government agencies, and nongovernmental organizations that play a pivotal role in combatting human trafficking. She directs a program that provides tailored solutions and ongoing consultation to help shape these institutional responses to trafficking – from analyzing risk within corporate supply chains and developing interagency protocols for community wide responses to training direct practitioners in best practices and improving law enforcement investigation techniques.
