- Provide feedback on insights collated by BSR
- Share experience with participants on the opportunities and challenges of integrating gender considerations more prominently into social auditing
- Learn from other assessment methodologies and share views about their relevance for gender-related auditing
This workshop will be held under Chatham house rules and is aimed at audit practitioners and stakeholders involved in workplace assessments. It will touch upon a range of topics including audit team composition, interview techniques, audit checklists, challenges and opportunities of the industry, country/industry specificities and worker voice tools.
