Our Work

For 25 years, we have aligned business and social impact to address labor rights violations in global supply chains, including child labor, forced labor, and gender discrimination. 

Across sectors, industries and countries, we develop tools, implement programs, and conduct research to take aim at serious labor issues.

Our Assessments offer clarity and resolution to abuses in labor supply chains.
Our Research provides the information necessary to understand complex labor problems and advocate for reform.
Our Training instills practical skills and knowledge to build controls into everyday business practices.
Our Free Online Resources include data and tools to educate and support change.

We regularly work with governments to develop policy, companies to launch compliance initiatives, and engage stakeholders to support meaningful change.
