Our mission is to increase the quality and quantity of corporate workforce data in the public domain and support, encourage and enhance investor / company engagement on workforce and human rights issues through our workshops, convenings, data and analysis.

Our ambition is to become a thought leader on workforce issues and to spread that knowledge to our investor and company network. Every year we convene hundreds of companies, investors, unions and subject matter experts on salient human rights issues and new workforce data that we generate through the WDI survey.

In 2020, WDI participating companies made three times more data available to investors than non-participating companies.
