The Garment Worker Diaries is a trusted, independent and direct channel of communication between garment workers in the global apparel supply chain and the world. The channel is open every week, 52 weeks a year through weekly interviews conducted by phone.
Our purpose is to ensure a wide range of stakeholders use the GWD channel to gain insights into workers’ context, experiences, and opinions so these can be included in decision-making processes that affect workers' lives and well-being.
Reports, maps, graphs and an interactive dashboard to help you dig into the conversation with garment workers.
