GWD builds direct, trusted, and independent Channels of Communication with workers in global value chains in the developing world through frequent dialogue. We offer stakeholders with a vested interest in the well-being of workers in global value chains access to the Channels and an opportunity to engage with workers directly.
To place credible worker data at the center of efforts to build responsible and sustainable global value chains.
GWD envisions a world that recognizes the dignity of the work of lower-income and marginalized people in global value chains, hears their voices, and supports their efforts to define and live full sustainable lives.
Our approach is about more than access; it's about establishing meaningful connections. Stakeholders with a deep vested interest in the well-being of these workers don't just hear from them once; they engage in an ongoing dialogue. It's through these sustained conversations that trust is built, understanding is deepened, and positive change becomes a collective effort.
LISTENING TO WORKERS IN GLOBAL VALUE CHAINS
GWD began with a focus on garment workers–the original “G” in GWD. But our approach can be used in any global value chain in any country–whether it is tea plantations in India or electronics manufacturers in Vietnam–by leveraging the deep knowledge and experience of the GWD team, who have worked across multiple value chains and countries.
