Topics

#Inclusive Economy


Please join us for a morning dialogue in London 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, a panel of experts will explore how businesses can help create an inclusive economy, from inclusive workplaces to thriving communities. Featured examples will include how Sodexo works on making its supply chain more inclusive and resilient, why and how GSK has reinvented its business to increase access to medicines, the business case for leading retailing brands to invest in women in their supply chains, and how new models such as the circular economy contribute to job creation in a more inclusive economy.

At the event, companies can expect to understand the rationales and business cases for more inclusive business practices and take away key lessons in how to drive change through their direct operations and supply chains.

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