IT for Change, Why Not Labs, and the ILO.
We hosted 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 was hosted as a community lab and was co-organized by IT for Change, Why Not Labs, and the ILO. The discussion focused on crystalizing workers’ rights within national legislatures and through international benchmarks, as well as exploring policies for worker-led alternatives.
The session was 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 was conducted on 8 June 2022 at 14:30 IST/05:00 ET.
