Meet the team intro


We are honored to be recognized for our programs, partnerships, and initiatives that advance responsible supply chains and empower workers.

U.S. Trafficking in Persons Report 2023 

We are proud to be acknowledged in the 2023 U.S. Trafficking in Persons (TIP) Report as a partnership model for monitoring and eliminating forced labor in supply chains and enhancing worker protections. Issara Institute’s model and collaborative approach was further highlighted during U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s speech at the TIP Report Launch Ceremony. This recognition highlights our dedication to improving labor conditions through our worker empowerment programs, long-term partnerships, and innovative initiatives.


"When President Biden released his national plan to combat human trafficking, he said…'we can accomplish far more working in partnership than we can working alone.' That's true for the work between governments, between federal and local officials, and with and between civil society and the private sector...We see it in the work of the Issara Institute. That's an NGO that's worked hand in hand with the private sector to help hundreds of thousands of workers learn about their rights and seek remediation when labor abuses occur."

The Open Data Institute Peer Learning Network 2023-2024

Issara Institute is delighted to have been selected for the Open Data Institute's (ODI) data for workers' rights peer-learning network in partnership with Humanity United. In collaboration with organizations from around the world, we're working to use data to strengthen workers' rights, combat labor exploitation, and promote transparency in global supply chains.


This is an excellent opportunity to exchange insights, best practices, and innovative solutions to address common data challenges in the pursuit of a better future for workers. We're proud to be part of a network that contributes to making a more equitable and just world for workers everywhere.

Tech Against Trafficking Accelerator 2023

We are grateful to have been selected for the Tech Against Trafficking (TAT) Accelerator 2023 cohort. The TAT accelerator identifies promising uses of technology in the anti-trafficking field and helps organizations in deploying technological solutions to accelerate the development, impact, and utilization of their tools.

Throughout the Accelerator program, we will collaborate with TAT members such as Amazon, Google, Meta, Microsoft, and Salesforce to enhance our technology architecture and scale solutions to serve a wider range of workers, NGOs, and businesses across different geographical regions. We are excited about the opportunity to make further advancements in our mission to combat labor exploitation and promote responsible supply chains.
