Collective action by business, civil society, governments, workers, and worker representatives is essential to ensure that employment is a true catalyst for the empowerment of women who make up the majority of workers in the garment industry. Leveraging decades of experience, this webinar will discuss how learnings from the last 10+ years of programmatic interventions are applied to the development of current collaborative solutions to reach impact at scale.

Hosted by Empower@Work, which brings together the world’s four largest women’s empowerment programs in the global supply chains—BSR’s HERproject, CARE International, Gap Inc.’s P.A.C.E. Program and ILO-IFC Better Work, this side event will be held at the OECD Forum: Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector.
