Sustainable Capacity-Building at Site Level: What Incentives & Opportunities?
Market dynamics, business needs, and new technologies and data are coming together in ways that are enabling – perhaps for the first time ever – truly scalable and sustainable capacity building at factories and farms. Common program themes are workplace safety, gender (from harassment to empowerment), social dialogue, and management systems. This session will feature a panel discussion on different strategies and drivers that can be used to achieve scalable and measurable improvement on any or all themes. It will feature practical examples of supplier ownership in practice, fit-for-purpose tools and technology, new datasets, and key levers that can influence a successful remediation and capacity building strategy.
