Strengthening Verité’s Global Network

Last month, staff from Verité’s independent regional offices, Verité China and Verité Southeast Asia, and long-term network partner Sheva Nari O Shishu Kallyan Kendra from Bangladesh, joined staff from Verité in Amherst for a week-long summit to strengthen Verité’s global network. The regional offices, network partners who were able to take part in the event, and Verité Amherst staff were able to share the pioneering work they are undertaking in areas such as the garment industry, on worker empowerment and wellbeing programs, and as members of the Thai Seafood Task Force . These meetings gave staff a chance to update each other their current work on topics including ethical recruitment, construction, agriculture, and palm oil.
