Forging an Inclusive Economy: The Role of Business

While capitalism has created enormous global prosperity, it has also left too many people behind. A new, more inclusive economy that balances profitability with equity is needed, and business has a critical role to play.

But how do businesses of all sizes embed serving the needs of low-income and marginalized communities more deeply across all aspects of purpose, strategy and operations? What can big business learn from entrepreneurs pioneering market-based approaches to tackling inequality? And what actions can business leaders take to play their part in forging an inclusive economy?

No matter your starting point, this Lightning Bolt presents a practical framework, actionable ideas and real-life case studies intended to inspire and aid businesses of all sizes on their inclusive journey.
