Driving leadership action to Build Back Responsibly
To coincide with this year’s United Nations General Assembly Week, we are bringing together business leaders across our network to take part in a virtual roundtable. We want to tap into your strategic thinking to create faster, bolder and bigger action. Through convening our most influential allies, we want to set the plan to propel the full might of our network in driving the action needed to build back responsibly.
The impact of COVID-19 has been unprecedented, not just in the tragic impact on lives, or the disproportional impact it has had on the most disadvantaged communities, but also in terms of what we have seen can be achieved. As lockdown restrictions ease and we all negotiate living in a ‘new normal’, we must not lose the opportunity to understand what factors made change happen at a pace previously unimaginable. Also how to apply this to address the underlying inequalities and climate challenges that existed before COVID-19.
To drive this, BITC has held conversations with over 100 business leaders and a further 500 practitioners and partners to understand what COVID-19 has taught us about how we could turn ambitions into action. Now is our moment to not simply slip back to a new normal, seeing the last few months as a series of heroic acts, but instead to seize the opportunity to accelerate action.
