IT for Change, Why Not Labs, and the ILO. 

We are hosting a session at the 11th edition of RightsCon to discuss the current state of affairs and the future agenda for workers’ rights in the digital economy. The session will be hosted as a community lab and is being co-organized by IT for Change, Why Not Labs, and the ILO. The discussion will focus on crystalizing workers’ rights within national legislatures and through international benchmarks, as well as exploring policies for worker-led alternatives.

The session will be facilitated by key voices at this intersection: Christina Colclough (Why Not Lab), Anita Gurumurthy (IT for Change), Uma Rani (Senior Researcher on the platform economy, ILO), and Simel Esim (Program Manager, Coop Unit, ILO), to draw on participants' suggestions, and to shape strategies for the fight ahead.

The session will be conducted on 8 June 2022 at 14:30 IST/05:00 ET.
