Join us for a week of inspiring and engaging content, live events, and peer networking to explore how we can #rebuildbetter.

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.

Join us for a week of inspiring and engaging content, live events, peer networking and structured learning to explore how we can rebuild better together.

Business Fights Poverty Online 2020 is timed to coincide with the United Nations High-Level Political Forum on Sustainable Development, the UN central platform for follow-up and review of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development Goals. Participants will come away with fresh insights and new peer relationships to tackle the most pressing challenges facing business, people and planet.

Meet some of the amazing speakers that you'll be joining...

MONDAY | 13 JULY

How can we embed purpose into business, as we rebuild better?

Efforts to rebuild better must be led by governments, but business, along with civil society has a critical role to play. Embedding purpose into business can be a powerful force for change, but how do we ensure this is authentic?
TUESDAY | 14 JULY
How can we help workers, SMEs and farmers thrive?
The coronavirus pandemic has exposed and exacerbated existing fragilities in value chains. How can we create opportunity and build resilience, especially for the most vulnerable workers, small enterprises and farmers?
WEDNESDAY | 15 JULY
How can we build the skills needed for the future?
COVID-19 and the required lockdowns have put at risk the jobs of hundreds of millions of people. This is on top of disruptive trends like automation. How can we ensure people, especially the young, have the skills they need?
THURSDAY | 16 JULY
How do we achieve gender and racial equity?
The pandemic has had a disproportionate impact by gender, race and income level. The murder of George Floyd has highlighted the urgent need for action against racism. How can business help drive equity?
FRIDAY | 17 JULY
How do we work together to drive system-level change?
It has been clear over recent months that we are deeply interconnected, and that faced with a global challenge we have the capacity to collaborate. How can we harness this to tackle climate change and inequality?
All week!
