ILO Office for the United States

ILO is a specialized agency of the United Nations.

In 1920 the ILO established an office in Washington, one of the first four cities to have an ILO office along with Paris, London, and Rome. The ILO Office for the United States represents the ILO and ensures that its core priorities and interests, policies and experience are disseminated among key stakeholders.

Mission

The primary goal of the ILO today is to promote opportunities for women and men to obtain decent and productive work, in conditions of freedom, equity, security and human dignity. The mission of the ILO Office for the United States is to be a strong, visible, and proactive presence in the United States in order to effectively engage members of government, employers’ organizations, and workers’ groups and other international organizations in social dialogue and building partnerships for these purposes.
