Sharing responsibilities and driving practicable progress on GBVH in the garment and footwear sector hero image

Side Session at the OECD Forum on Due Diligence in the Garment and Footwear Sector.

With continued reports of gender-based violence and harassment (GBVH) in garment and footwear factories and an increased emphasis in human rights due diligence of supply chains in response to growing regulatory expectations in Europe, what actions can companies take to prevent GBVH happening in their supply chains?

ETI and RISE invite you to join a virtual panel discussion and interactive workshop with experts, buyers and worker and manufacturer representatives from production countries. Explore how a gender responsive human rights due diligence approach can help prepare for new regulatory requirements through shared responsibility and action among industry actors. Discuss with stakeholders how to approach risk assessments, engage with suppliers, and address social norms.

Date: Tuesday 20th February – 14:45 to 16:15 CET

Organizers: Ethical Trading Initiative (ETI) & RISE: Reimagining Industry to Support Equality
