Issara Academy is comprised of training programs for employers, recruiters, and civil society, and global webinars for brands and retailers, donors, and practitioners. Trainings and webinars provide cutting edge insights on business and human rights that leverage worker voice intelligence and Issara's on-the-ground experience. Trainings analyze and deconstruct emerging good practice, provide peer-to-peer and case study sharing on how to improve management systems and performance, and convey the latest information regarding laws and processes related to migrant labour in Southeast Asia. Issara Academy is an important forum for networking and building relationships within the growing business and human rights community as well, particularly at the national level in Asian countries.
Issara trainers do real work with real suppliers and workers in global supply chains, every day. They can take the conversation far beyond international standards and national laws, to give helpful, practical guidance on how to strengthen business practices.
Recruitment agencies regularly comment that Issara's case study-based professionalization training for recruitment agencies are the most effective they have attended, being heavily based on critical discussion of real-life cases and practical solutions.
Peer-to-peer learning is important for the exchange of ideas and experiences, and is also vital for the development of an emerging business and human rights community in countries like Myanmar, shown here.
