Webinar: Nike - Just do it for women's rights!
Come along to our webinar ‘Nike – Just Do It for Women’s Rights!’ on Tuesday 5 October at 5pm AEDT.
Nike is failing to step up support for the women garment workers in Cambodia who help them make billions of dollars in profits year after year.
Major investors will meet for Nike’s Annual General Meeting on 6 October. The lead up to this event is a crucial opportunity for our community to tell Nike to ‘just do it’ and step up its commitment to workers making their clothes and shoes.
Join us for a special webinar featuring local and international advocates on garment worker rights. You’ll hear about the situation on the ground and learn what we can do in Australia. We’ll also take collective action on social media to get Nike to do the right thing in the lead up to its important investor meeting!
When: Tuesday 5 October, 5pm-6.15pm AEDT
RSVP today and receive the link to join!
