JCC Global Village: Behind the Scenes of a Multinational Corporation

Do multinationals treat people badly or do they bring development to some of the world’s poorest areas? Join representatives from Labour Behind the Label, brand umbrella Pentland, and Impactt, labour standards consultants to M&S.

Global Village is a series of workshops and events developed by the JCC and Tzedek, and led by people who work in the field of international development. Come along, get involved and join the discussion.

What really goes on in multinational corporations? Who made the t-shirt you are wearing? Do multinationals treat people badly or are they bringing development and globalisation to some of the world’s poorest areas? Join Samantha Maher from Labour Behind the Label; Andy Rubin, Chief Executive of Pentland Brands, which owns brands such as Lacoste and Ted Baker; and Impactt, which helps companies such as Marks & Spencer and New Look improve labour standards. The panel will be chaired by Brian Pomeroy, chair of Raleigh International and former chair of homeless charity Centrepoint.
