By 2030, the break-neck pace of economic growth currently underway across emerging and developing economies will have lifted millions out of poverty, and with them, a market opportunity of unprecedented scope. So-called “Inclusive Business” is an inevitability of the future business order. All successful businesses will be faced with the decision to engage this swell of newly consuming masses, adjust product suites and marketing strategies, and re-evaluate or create their role in this new world order.
Join this discussion in the 2015 annual Inclusion Forum from the Institute for Business in the Global Context (IBGC):
“Inclusion, Inc.” will draw upon IBGC’s ongoing research in Sustainable and Inclusive Business Activities (SIBA) focusing on key barriers and common issues to inclusive business at scale in emerging and developed markets. “Inclusion Inc.” will explore the role or corporation in supporting more inclusive and sustainable business models. Key topics for discussion within this theme will include the language of SIBA, measurement, and the role of catalytic individuals vs. mandates within corporations.
“Inclusion, Inc.” will bring together scholars, representatives from government, industry, and NGOs and students to engage in dialogue, exchange ideas, and problem-solve. Stay tuned for more information regarding the agenda and registration.
