Advisory Group

Advisors play a critical role in Electronics Watch. Informally, they enrich the work with their particular expertise.  Formally, they can help elect the Board of Trustees as each advisory group block nominates and elects their representatives to the Board.

Block 1. Public buyers

This block consists of the Electronics Watch affiliates

Block 2. Experts in human rights, labour rights, and global supply chains

Are you up on the latest international and national guidelines and legislative efforts to combat worker rights abuses in global supply chains? Do you do research on the global electronics supply chain?  Do you have a background in social auditing or worker interviewing?  Tell us how you believe Electronics Watch can best help strengthen worker rights in global supply chains.
