“Working humans are so much more than ‘resources’. This is one of the central lessons of the current crisis.” So begins a manifesto drafted in the spring of 2020 in response to the Covid-19 pandemic, which argues that work needs to be democratized, de-commodified and made sustainable. The Manifesto has been translated in multiple languages and supported across the globe.

This conversation on Democratizing Work (held in French), which will take place on Tuesday, November 17th (9:30 EST), is an opportunity to bring together its authors with leading representatives and specialists from the world of work in a dialogue about the Manifesto and current priorities for the pandemic and beyond.
