Dame Barbara Stocking, DBE, University of Cambridge:
“We have to start thinking about how the whole world can benefit from the things that are developed in other parts of the world to make sure that everybody gets access to things – and that’s what I mean by equity.”
Rt Hon Liam Byrne MP, Labour MP for Birmingham:
“If we want to exit from the situation that we’re in at the moment, we’ve got to build a bigger supply of better-paid jobs … Ultimately, if we want to be richer, we’re going to have to be smarter.”
Claudine McMahon, Vodafone:
“At the core of our strategy is starting to build coalitions and alliances between companies, corporations, communities, and partners on the same trajectory to support #equity – in the community and in business – to drive the agenda forward.”
Rt Hon Liam Byrne MP, Labour MP for Birmingham:
“Good jobs cannot be lost. The bottom line is that our country simply does not have enough good jobs. Figuring out how those jobs are created and what is needed from a #Partnership with the government is step number one.”
Claudine McMahon, Vodafone:
“There are developments that are starting to take hold that point to more positive momentum in terms of how we, as businesses, mature our approach to diversity, equity, and inclusion – in our businesses, in our communities, and with our customers”
Professor Anna Barford:
“There is a global landscape of businesses needing to leverage their influence not only to advance the #equity agenda but also to inspire others”
Dame Barbara Stocking, DBE, University of Cambridge:
“The more we can get reasonable, good jobs in developing countries to enable more young people to feel they have purpose in life – this is important for individuals, countries, and their development.”
