Join digital conversations with some of the leading lights in open and sustainable trade.
In regions such as South Asia, home-based workers are a significant part of the workforce in labour-intensive sectors. They generally work in the informal sector and most are women. They represent one of the most vulnerable groups of workers in the supply chain.
This session will outline the specific challenges of suppliers who manage home-based workers. We will discuss how businesses can work with suppliers and civil society to help protect the rights of home-based workers. The sessions will include case studies from amfori members and partners.
The speakers are:
Jean Johnson - GoodWeave, Director, Apparels and Accessories
Lucy Brill - Director, Homeworkers Worldwide.
Shahnaz Rafiq - Trade Union Organiser, Trainer and Leader.
Together we share experiences, awaken new ideas and ignite possibilities.
We inspire positive change.
