2021 CWC Workers' Capital Conference

The CWC 2021 Workers’ Capital Conference will be held virtually from October 25-29th, 2021. The annual conference provides a collaborative space for trade union representatives and labour-nominated trustees to discuss strategies and perspectives on holding asset managers accountable to fundamental labour rights in the investment chain.

The conference will feature three formal sessions that highlight key issues relevant to the stewardship of workers capital. Campaign Spotlights have also been organized for each day of the conference where global trade unions will highlight an active shareholder advocacy campaign and share how collogues can get involved. Then the final day of the conference will feature an interactive brainstorming session where participants will be able to share and discuss CWC priorities for the upcoming year. Although sessions are still in development, the conference schedule is as follows:

  • Session 1: Asset manager accountability on labour rights: where is the leverage and what are the results for workers? (October 25th at 17:00 Central European Summer Time)
  • Session 2: The UN Guiding Principals 10 years on: Are they helping mobilise investors around adverse labour rights impacts? (October 26th at 18:00 Australian Eastern Standard Time)
  • Session 3: Where do labour rights fit in as private market funds ramp up their net-zero commitments? (October 26th at 17:00 Eastern Daylight Time)
  • Session 4: An interactive brainstorming session on CWC 2022 priorities (Session 4a on October 28th at 17:00 Central European Summer Time and Session 4b on October 29th at 9:00 Australian Eastern Standard Time)

Important: Registration is exclusively open to participants who are affiliated to a trade union. If you are not affiliated to a trade union, please contact the CWC Secretariat to indicate your interest in attending the conference. Registrations from non-trade union participants will be reviewed on a case by case basis.
