Better Work Global Advisory Committee



We believe our best chance for success in meeting our mandate is achieved through partnering with those deeply engaged in the industry. In addition to the guidance we receive from key stakeholders at a country level, we also gather and receive advice from our partners, leaders and experts in the industry, who form our Advisory Committee. They represent donor governments, international employers’ and workers’ organizations, international buyer partners and experts in the global supply chain and/or labour standards. They give us the benefit of their vast experience by providing inputs to our future strategies and facilitating partnership opportunities between our organization and theirs.
