Career talk: intersections of labor rights & the environment

Join us for a public career talk during our Human Rights Careers Intensive on Friday, April 23 at 11:15am with Emily Kelly and Ame Sagiv.

Emily Kelly is the World Economic Forum's UpLink Ocean Community Success Lead. She formerly drove analysis and synthesis for ocean and labor rights solutions at Stanford University's Center for Ocean Solutions. Her past research focused on human uses of, and impacts on, marine systems. She has worked in crowded urban centers and remote Pacific Atolls and lived between Antarctica, Namibia, and Hawai'i. Her international policy engagement has ranged from inside an inflatable igloo erected in support of US climate negotiations to small buildings in the Vatican behind St. Peter’s Basilica.

As Humanity United's director of forced labor & human trafficking, Ame Sagiv manages the organization’s initiative to combat forced labor in the Thai seafood industry. Ame has more than 15 years of experience in global development, conservation, and labor rights. Prior to joining HU, she worked with staff and partners at The Nature Conservancy to implement some of the organization’s most innovative environmental programs. Ame was previously with the Global Development Program at the Hewlett Foundation, and before that, she managed the Sierra Club’s fair-trade licensing program, conducting supply chain due diligence for a diverse portfolio of products to ensure adherence to the highest environmental and labor standards and practices.

This public talk will be presented on the heels of our Human Rights Careers Intensive, a workshop on finding your place in the human rights career sphere. Our Center will run the careers intensive again next year. RSVP required.
