Building Sustainable Supply Chains: Evaluating Worker Well-being Impacts Using Blockchain
2021/03/31 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm
Workers around the world lack mechanisms to safely and confidentially advocate for change or voice concerns related to their work, safety, health and overall well-being. According to the World Health Organization, over 50% of workers in many countries have no social protection and are subject to lax enforcement of occupational health and safety standards. The time for organizations to pursue innovative solutions to support healthier supply chain workforces is now. Business leaders are moving toward new models that increase trust, transparency, and accountability, thereby improving worker well-being and building more sustainable supply chains.
Over the past two years, the Harvard Chan SHINE team collaborated with New America and Levi Strauss & Co. to develop a blockchain-based solution to assess health and working conditions in supply chains. By integrating the SHINE Well-being Survey, a research tool based on universal human needs for well-being, into a secure blockchain platform that can be deployed in-person or remotely, workers are empowered to safely share their workplace experiences.
Please join us for a discussion with leaders from SHINE, New America, and the Levi Strauss Foundation about this exciting collaboration for sustainable supply chains on Wednesday, March 31 from 1-2pm ET.
