Christine Diamente, Managing Director of Business Transformation at BSR, shares three insights on how business can be more resilient.
The time is now for an overhaul of the social contract to address 21st-century realities and needs. A new social contract can deliver long-term value creation that enables economic security and mobility, is genuinely inclusive, and addresses challenges such as the transition to clean energy and the emergence of a digital world.
The world’s leading companies have a tremendous opportunity to stand up and promote rights and protections for their LGBTIQ+ employees. The UN LGBTIQ+ Standards Gap Analysis Tool—recently launched by a coalition of international organizations, including BSR and the Partnership for Global LGBTIQ+ Equality (PGLE)—is helping companies to do just that.
Complex interplay of social, political, environmental, and economic factors fosters an environment where violence, oppression, poverty, human rights abuses, and state failure are more likely to occur. Businesses that integrate human rights management into strategic decision-making and day-to-day operations will be more resilient to today’s global challenges while addressing some of the social, economic, and environmental drivers of conflict.
We are entering the next era of just and sustainable business with a much clearer pathway. BSR Vice President Dunstan Allison-Hope shares a framework around which the field seems to be coalescing.
