Rarely do we find the time to reflect on long-term approaches to tackling global labor abuses and considering our evolution as a global network to meet those challenges. This past April, thirty-four Verité partners paused in their day-to-day commitments to gather in Bangkok to share and strategize about the issues most critical to the Verité network’s goal of promoting fair, safe, and legal work.

Verité was pleased to participate in the global convening on Transformative Technology for Migrant Workers in London earlier this month. The convening was organized by Open Society Foundations, University of New South Wales, and University of Technology Sydney. Participants hailed from around the globe and included representatives from government, labor unions, civil society, and the private sector. The diverse group included researchers, practitioners, technical service providers, experts, and funders. The purpose of this convening was to examine the ways in which technology interventions are increasingly being used to address the exploitation of migrant workers.
