Lori Bishop, M.P.A

Created on Wednesday, 08 January 2020

Lori leads FishWise’s Social Responsibility team, helping to advance human rights and fair labor practices in global seafood supply chains. 

Lori’s work draws from more than 15 years of experience leading innovative social change initiatives, including broad and deep expertise on issues of forced labor in global supply chains. Prior to FishWise, Lori created and managed Humanity United’s largest anti-slavery programs, including building and managing the Alliance to End Slavery and Trafficking (ATEST), managing HU’s entry into Asia, and developing a groundbreaking initiative to engage corporations, investors, and others in a proactive fight against modern slavery. These programs operated across sectors, with a particular focus on seafood, palm oil and gold. Through this work – at the intersection of philanthropy, human rights, and sustainable supply chains – Lori spearheaded prize-winning journalism, the development of effective due diligence tools, direct relationships with Fortune 500 companies, and extensive engagement with civil society actors in the U.S. and globally. 

Prior to Humanity United, Lori focused on international economic development and governance reform at the Millennium Challenge Corporation, the Office of the High Representative (Bosnia and Herzegovina) and the Urban Institute. A Peace Corps Volunteer in Togo, Lori started her career supporting the development of small businesses and micro-savings collectives in rural West Africa. Lori earned a B.A. in Economics and Spanish from Emory University and an M.P.A. from the Princeton School of Public and International Affairs.
