Business Fights Poverty’s inaugural Virtual Summit, on 15th October, will deep-dive into how business can help ensure health access for all. In the run-up, we’ve published several articles on this theme. Other offerings explore the opportunity of global value chains to create a more inclusive and equitable world.
The big news this week is that tomorrow, 15 October, we will go live with the first of our Business Fights Poverty Virtual Summits . Following on from NYC Online 2020 last month, we are hosting a series of free one-day online events to deep-dive into six specific action areas.
Tomorrow’s Virtual Summit focuses on the vitally important subject of Health. We are thrilled to be joined by a diverse panel of experts to discuss how business can help ensure health access for all. You canregister here for the day, which will include:
Live participation is free for all our Virtual Summits. In addition, you can access recordings and written summaries of the event with our digital passes . These can be purchased for single events, or alternatively our Annual Digital Pass enables discounted access to the recordings for both our flagship five-day Online Conferences and all six Virtual Summits. In purchasing a digital pass, you are helping us ensure that those who can't afford it, get free live access to our online events.
