Join us for an international forum, November 12th and 13th, 2020 on the topic of policy and organizational solutions to the challenges of app-based work. This virtual convening will bring together worker organizations and other stakeholders from across the world to share experiences and explore strategies for advancing worker protections and collective representation in the digital platform economy.

This is a two-day forum. The first day, November 12th will focus on organizing and collective representation strategies. The second day, November 13th will focus on policy and legal solutions. Forum participants will include representatives from labor groups that are currently engaged in platform worker organizing or representation campaigns in countries across the globe, as well as policymakers, labor experts, and scholars.
