BSR and The Rockefeller Foundation are delighted to invite you to join us for a breakfast outreach event in New York about the Global Impact Sourcing Coalition (GISC)—a new business coalition to promote more inclusive and diverse global supply chains, with an initial focus on the Business Process Outsourcing industry. The event will include an introduction to the GISC, a panel discussion with GISC member companies Bloomberg and Digital Divide Data, and time for Q&A and networking.

Join us to learn more about Impact Sourcing and how to participate in the new coalition:

  • Learn about Impact Sourcing, and the opportunity that this inclusive hiring practice offers to business, employees, and communities
  • Learn from participating companies about their experiences providing good job opportunities to disadvantaged populations in the United States and India
  • Network and learn from other participant’s experiences with Impact Sourcing
  • Join the new Global Impact Sourcing Coalition as a member

On the GISC website you will find further details about the GISC, as well as a white paper that offers perspectives from the workers that we aim to empower through impact sourcing. You may also read our blog on the launch of this initiative in South Africa last September. GISC already has more than 30 member organizations engaged, and we are just at the beginning of our journey together.
