Topics

#Inclusive Economy


Please join us for an afternoon dialogue in Hong Kong to explore how the private sector can help build a more inclusive economy through good jobs, access to essential goods and services, and investments for prosperous communities.

During this event, panelists will share their views on how businesses with footprints in greater China and Asia can help create an inclusive economy, from inclusive workplaces to thriving communities. The event will feature an interactive discussion with the panelists and BSR experts, as well as an exploration of best practices and opportunities for collective action. Companies can expect to take away key lessons in how to drive change through their direct operations, supply chains, and as actors in the broader economic environment.

The agenda will feature:

  • Panel discussions with leaders from BSR member companies, BSR experts, and civil society
  • An introduction to BSR’s new strategy to promote Business Leadership for an Inclusive Economy, led by BSR's Manager for Partnership Development and Research Brooke Avory
  • An informal networking reception to further debate and share ideas

BSR member companies from multiple industries and select partners from non-member companies, civil society, philanthropies, and other sectors will be in attendance.
