Roger McElrath will be a panelist in a session devoted to the latest developments in living wages around the world from a company, civil society, and government perspective. The panel, "Unpacking the Case for the Living Wage in Law, Practice, and Commerce," will take place on Monday, November 14 from 4:40-6 p.m. And Peter Nestor will lead a session on embedding human rights in global companies, on Tuesday, November 15, at noon.
