Speaker 1: Sadish Dhaka, Data & Policy Manager at GBL. He will cover the differential opportunities in the private sector to conduct M&E.
for Sadish: A lot of businesses invest in CSR just for PR purposes. M&E is an investment which requires a business to genuinely care about corporate responsibility. How do you reconcile between the two
Speaker 2: Smit Gade, Data & Research Manager at GBL. He will focus discussion on leveraging data systems in factories to conduct M&E.

Speaker 3: Laura Quinn, Sustainability Communications and Partnerships Advisor at Shahi Exports. She will be bringing in the private sector perspective on M&E.
Has Shahi stopped doing certain programs because the M&E did not demonstrate effectiveness?
Speaker 4: Roxanne O'Connell, Program Manager at Humanity United . She will be touching upon why it is crucial to invest in M&E as part of funding on ground programs.
For the M&E experts, what is the current state of how programs align or not on M&E indicators? Would it be better if M&E KPIs were made more consistent for, let's say, health and wellness programs?
has GBL worked with (or considered) any other industries? what are the benchmarks that you might need to consider when picking an industry?
Just dropping in my email id to recieve the presentations - firstname.lastname@example.org
For Laura: Do you think there has been a change in the appetite of business leaders for M&E in the last decade?
Has there been any attempts to replicate the studies carried out at Shahi under different scenarios - factories not a part of Shahi or even in other developing countries?
This is probably a little far fetched but does GBL consider automation a challenge at all in when trying to convince businesses to invest in worker wellness? (Given that automation does threaten garment workers since its factory labor and in general affects the labor cost advantage of developing countries enjoy)
when trying* (please excuse grammar errors)
