#Human Rights


For nearly a century, the International Labour Organization (ILO), a UN agency, has worked with employers, governments, and workers to promote labor rights and encourage decent employment opportunities. Today, the ILO continues to be a key resource for business in fostering inclusive development and promoting decent work throughout global supply chains.

In this webinar, BSR will bring together experts from the United States Council for International Business, International Organisation of Employers, and The Coca-Cola Company to provide an inside perspective on how the ILO works, how decisions are reached, and how business can engage with the organization. We’ll explore emerging trends in labor rights and their implications for business and examine how engaging with the ILO can reap business benefits.

Speakers

  • Ronnie Goldberg, Senior Counsel, USCIB (United States Council for International Business)
  • Brent Wilton, Secretary-General, International Organisation of Employers
  • Ed Potter, Director, Global Workplace Rights, The Coca-Cola Company
  • Tara Norton, Managing Director, BSR
