International Labor Organization
The International Labour Organization (ILO) is dedicated to the mission of attempting to improve working conditions, reduce unemployment and generally fight for social justice around the world. Its main mechanism to achieve these goal is the setting of International Labor Standards which govern the responsibilities of employers, labor unions and governments to provide for and regulate working conditions and wages.
Hello. My name is Sam Wittman. I will be your chair for the International Labour Organization Committee. I grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, and I am a sophomore at George Washington University. I am majoring in International Affairs with an intended concentration in Africa. I hope to go on and serve in the US Foreign Service. I have a great interest in politics and history, and I this has helped fuel my enjoyment of Model United Nations. I like to travel, and I spent last summer overseas teaching English classes for Syrian refugees. I am very excited to meet all of our delegates, and to see what ideas and solutions they put together.
