Amplifying Worker Voice: Integrating Worker Engagement Approaches into Ethical Supply Chain Management
This not-to-be-missed interactive seminar will expand the sustainable seafood community’s understanding of the benefits of and pathways to ethical worker feedback, engagement, and participation through conversations with workers, case studies, working groups, and expert guidance. Globalization has profoundly influenced how companies do business, making transparency regarding fair working conditions more complex. Companies, labor experts, and seafood stakeholders are exploring how worker engagement mechanisms can benefit business operations while improving worker well-being.
The session intends to share the experiences of workers and explore how to improve conditions in seafood supply chains. Moving between plenary and breakout formats to maximize discussion, group problem solving, and action planning, the session will be moderated by speakers with strong technical understanding of worker engagement models as well as the realities of the seafood sector. Participants will take away concrete steps that will assist business and organizations to create or strengthen social responsibility commitments and implement best practices for worker engagement.
Join other international stakeholders and explore collaborative efforts to create meaningful connection between those managing supply chains and the people working within them!
