The Urgent Case for Inclusive Growth
14:00 – 15:30
Centre International de Conférences Genève - Room B
When economic opportunities are available to everyone, especially those who face the greatest barriers, everyone wins. Inclusive growth strategies focus on reducing inequality, go beyond GDP metrics, identify and work with stakeholders vs shareholders, and recognize value in investing in people and geographies that have been left behind in the last century of rapid globalization. Why should businesses care about inclusive growth and how can they integrate this focus into their own business practices?
