Kohl Gill - LaborVoices

Dr. Kohl S. Gill runs a startup, LaborVoices, that uses crowdsourcing to prevent factory fires, suicides and human trafficking in global supply chains.  He's been invited to the Clinton Global Initiative, and featured in BloombergBusinessweek and the Wall Street Journal.  One of the most common questions he's asked is, "How did you get into this work?"  Kohl's path goes 8 years back to the UCSB Physics Department, and passes through the slums of Delhi and Washington's corridors of power.  Now he's back to tell the story, along with more than you ever wanted to know about where your clothes and gadgets come from.
