#Inclusive Economy


BSR will host our next inclusive sharing economy convening on Tuesday September 27. This convening will be a discussion among sharing economy companies, to be followed by a multistakeholder meeting in October that will include both companies and key stakeholders. The conversation will focus on three key discussions:

  • What is our vision of an inclusive sharing economy? What are the principles that drive an inclusive sharing economy, and what can companies do to support it?
  • What do sharing economy companies need to move forward with more inclusive practices?
  • Which stakeholders, beyond the private sector, should be engaged for success?

We look forward to seeing you there.
