Join us during UNGA Week to #RebuildBetter

For over 10 years we have been bringing people together in-person in New York during UN General Assembly week. This year, Business Fights Poverty NYC will bring us together online, building on the success of Business Fights Poverty Online 2020 held in July.

COVID-19 has had, and continues to have, devastating impacts on the lives, livelihoods and learning of millions of people, particularly the most vulnerable. While efforts have rightly focused on mitigating the immediate impacts, we need to start thinking about efforts to recover and rebuild, because action taken now will have long-lasting effects on people's well-being and resilience.

The pandemic has exacerbated deep inequalities and fragilities in the current system that have always been there. We as a community have the opportunity and the responsibility to act now to build a better future.

Business Fights Poverty NYC Online 2020, co-hosted with AB InBev and Visa, will provide us with the opportunity to collectively set out a vision for what “better” looks like - at the level of society, business and the individual, and spark collaborative action to make this a reality.

Participants will come away with fresh insights and new peer relationships to tackle the most pressing challenges facing business, people and planet.

Engage in a week of inspiring content and events!

MONDAY | 21 SEPTEMBER

Imagining the Future We Want

What should rebuilding better mean and how do we accelerate progress towards the 2030 Sustainable Development Goals? What should be the role of business, and how to we measure progress?
TUESDAY | 22 SEPTEMBER
Creating an Equitable World
As we rebuild better, what role can business play, in partnership with government and civil society, in tackling the inequities that the pandemic, alongside movements like Black Lives Matter and MeToo, have highlighted?
WEDNESDAY | 23 SEPTEMBER
Helping People Survive and Thrive
In light of the enormous and long-lasting health and learning impacts of the pandemic, especially for the most vulnerable, how do we ensure people have access to the health and future skills they need to survive and thrive?
THURSDAY | 24 SEPTEMBER
Building Resilient Livelihoods
How can businesses best play a role to address the poverty affecting millions of people who work in global supply chains? How can they balance the drive for efficiency with the need for resilience across supply chains?
FRIDAY | 25 SEPTEMBER

Shaping System-Level Partnerships

Given the scale and complexity of system-level challenges we face, such as the pandemic, inequality and climate change, how can business best partner with others to drive transformational change?
ALL WEEK | 21 - 25 SEPTEMBER
