The Global Labour Research Centre and the Toronto & York Region Labour Council are pleased to present a two-day workshop for union, community-based and environmental activists to learn the basic tools for how to look inside the corporate world. We will identify and explore public sources of information on a wide variety of firms, and how to use this information to build innovative and creative campaigns. There will be plenty of hands-on experience using major databases and working collaboratively to deepen our understanding of the corporate world.

The workshop will be taught by Tom Juravich, Professor of Labor Studies and Sociology at UMass Amherst. Juravich has been conducting strategic corporate research for unions, community-based and environmental organizations for over two decades and teaches regularly on the topic. He is also the creator of StrategicCorporateResearch.org, a comprehensive web site for conducting corporate research.
