As a U.S.-based organization, can the WRC effectively meet the needs of British institutions?

The WRC has the experience and capacity to perform monitoring in all major apparel producing countries.  The supply chains of the business partners of universities in the U.K. that affiliate to the WRC are subject to the same complaint-based monitoring program, utilizing the WRC’s experienced staff and wide network of NGO and union contacts around the world, that is available to participating U.S. and Canadian universities.  Moreover, British universities have all of the same avenues for participation in the WRC available to U.S. and Canadian affiliates – including membership in the university caucus, nomination and potential election to the Board of Directors, participation in membership meetings and conference calls, and access to communications for university affiliates.
