Global Deal Annual High-Level Social Dialogue Forum

Global Deal Session 3: Addressing Inequalities: Social Dialogue and Due Diligence

Oct 13, 2021 | 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM


In view of several recent initiatives on making due diligence mandatory, this session will delve deeper into the link between due diligence and social dialogue. On the one hand, social dialogue provides business with the opportunity to structurally engage on labour issues with workers and their trade unions, which can then help them identify and address potential adverse impacts, as the experiences of those most affected are taken into account. On the other hand, due diligence can strengthen social dialogue as it requires compliance with two key pillars of social dialogue: the right to organise and the right to bargain collectively. The panellists will discuss the potential of due diligence to advance a global agenda of decent work and inclusive growth. The session will have interpretation in English, French and Spanish.
