Public Consultation on SLCP Converged Assessment Framework

The Social and & Labor Convergence Project (SLCP) has launched its online public consultation aimed at gathering inputs from external stakeholders on its assessment framework. The consultation will run from November 6, 2017 to December 13, 2017 (extended from the original closing date of Dec. 4).

“Over the last two years, important resources have been invested to create a converged assessment framework that supports stakeholders’ efforts to improve working conditions in the global apparel and footwear supply chain. After successfully launching the second prototype of the framework and kicking off the second pilot test, we are now ready for a broader stakeholder consultation that will shape the final version of the publicly available tool before its launched next year” says Janet Mensink, SLCP Project Director. “It is important to always keep in mind that at the end of the supply chain are workers whom we hope will benefit from increased resources dedicated towards improving their lives”.
