Further, it impacts a wide range of SDGs and provides concrete, measurable opportunities for progress on the often neglected social front. In partnership with UN Global Compact, we will explore the most common questions and challenges on how progress toward living wage payment can be incorporated in strategies to address the SDGs in ways that are beneficial to employers, workers, and communities. This webinar will leave companies with a firm understanding of the most impactful steps to take on living wage at home in the US as well as globally, and how to easily get started. We will also provide clear guidance on how to overcome common challenges and how addressing living wage can map directly to a variety of SDGs.
