India's remarkable economic growth in the past decade has created greater capacity for business to play its part in addressing the issues of poverty and exclusion that continue to be a major challenge within the country and the region.
Many companies are accepting this challenge, developing business models designed to return a profit for the company whilst including the poor as suppliers, employees, customers or clients and reducing dependency on natural resources.
Despite this flourish of innovation, many barriers remain to widening and deepening the reach of these inclusive business models barriers that company executives are often working alone to solve.
This Community of Practice workshop is aimed at practitioners interested in increasing the uptake and effectiveness of inclusive business models within their company. Building on the practice of Indian participants in the Business Call to Action and research conducted by the International Business Leaders Forum on the Barriers to Inclusive Business, participants will share approaches to inclusive business in India and work on solutions for the challenges they each face.
A resource book of examples and tools will also be shared. See Agenda
