ISSARA ACADEMY

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.
