Date: Thursday, April 7, 2022
Time: 9:00 a.m. – 10:00 a.m. EST
Place: Virtual. Registration required.

Join Solidarity Center Executive Director Shawna Bader-Blau for a high-level discussion with global leaders on ending gender violence. The panel, “Ending Violence and Harassment in the World of Work,” will look at how governments and social partners have addressed work-related violence and harassment, including gender violence, which markedly increased during the pandemic. Essential workers—grocery clerks, market vendors, domestic workers, health professionals—have been especially targeted for abuse.

The discussion is one of four panels featured by Global Deal Conference, A Better Future for Essential Workers, which will take place online April 6–7.

In partnership with the Open Society Foundations (OSF), the Global Deal Conference will raise awareness of essential workers’ key role supporting economies, societies and business, highlight practices that worked during COVID-19 and explore how to sustain effective changes. The conference features top-level global worker rights leaders, including:
  • Sharan Burrow, General Secretary, International Trade Union Confederation
  • Christy Hoffman, General Secretary, UNI Global Union
  • Rosa Pavanelli, General Secretary, Public Services International
