Together for 2022
We believe an equitable future is a more resilient future.

Thank you to so many participants for highlighting that point through the quotes you submitted, many of which were featured in this video at the "Together for 2022" workshop on January 17th.  We also shared many other great quotes on LinkedIn here.

The workshops brought together thoughtful practitioners and practical scholars from across the Business Fights Poverty community. They were curated by the community for the community. Thanks to the support of our learning partner Pearson, we have prepared one page summaries which you can download by clicking on the images below (the sessions were not video recorded).

Over the course of 2022 we will be in touch about further ways you can help move the needle on these issues.  If you did not register for the event, you can still sign up below to get involved.
