Speaker icon

For 11 years, Manyi Yu was Manager for a Nike footwear manufacturer that employed more than 10,000 workers. Part of her responsibility was corporate responsibility and labor practice. She later developed a passion for worker development. To better understand workers’ lives and aspirations, she lived in the workers’ dormitory for a year. She also started a voluntary worker association in the factory to help workers in need. In 2010, Yu and her partners founded Business Link Consulting, a consulting firm that specializes in driving the management upgrade in manufacturing, serving the factories, brands, and workers.
