As global enterprises grapple with the impacts of the current unprecedented pandemic, the most vulnerable workers and communities in their supply chains will bear the brunt of the immediate and long-term devastating effects of COVID-19. The pandemic offers opportunities to address market failures and position freedom and workers’ rights as central to a more sustainable and resilient economy. A panel of experts will explore how business leaders and consumers can ensure that corporations “build back” ethical supply chains. The speakers will draw on lessons from their work on the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act, the first of its kind in the country, to discuss practical strategies for rebuilding corporate supply chains rooted in transparency and accountability to ensure safe, fair, and dignified work for all in our interconnected world.
