What More Can Business Do to Tackle Social Inequality?
/

Capitalism is rightly recognized for lifting billions of people out of poverty, yet it has also perpetuated the systems that have left so many with so little, and so few with so much. We’ve been persuaded that markets are self-regulating and that it is acceptable to allocate risk and reward inequitably.

But market forces are not invisible hands, they are our hands, and collectively we hold the power to extend the benefits and opportunities of economic prosperity to everyone. To achieve this will require ongoing commitment and fundamental change, from all stakeholders.

This intimate Kitchen Table conversation hosted by EY will bring together business leaders whose organizations span multiple sectors and geographies, and range in size from early stage to Fortune 500. They’ll share their first-hand experience of creating a more systemic focus on serving the needs of low income and marginalized communities in practice, the challenges they’ve faced and how they’ve overcome them – individually and collectively. And, together, they’ll set out what more business can do to tackle social inequality.
