Join Us

This webinar is open to all interested parties. Please register here.

Date and Time

Thursday October 17, 2019
11:00 am-12:00 pm Eastern Time



On the occasion of the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty, join BSR and the Global Impact Sourcing Coalition (GISC) for a practical discussion on how companies can connect the dots between Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 8 and 1 to create inclusive opportunities for productive and decent employment that lead to sustainable pathways out of poverty.  

Globally, millions of individuals and families subsist below the international extreme poverty line, and billions more live below national poverty lines. Employing and training these individuals for quality work opportunities with career advancement potential is one of the most effective ways to reduce poverty. Importantly for companies, it is also an investment that can unlock business value and build competitive advantage amidst evolving labor markets and increasing customer and stakeholder expectations for the private sector to contribute to sustainable development.

This webinar will introduce a new Toolkit, including case studies and practical guidance, to help companies fight poverty with intentional inclusive employment strategies. Participants will leave with a clear understanding of the opportunity to generate social impact through employment, as well as a new public resource and ideas for how to get started in their own operations and with their suppliers.
