Open to BITC members and non-members

This event is part of Business in the Community’s ( BITC’s) response to the global call to build back better.

BITC’s Chief Executive, Amanda Mackenzie, is joined by a panel who will discuss the use and value of purpose in current times, sharing their examples of purpose in action, while exploring if and how purpose can guide business in building back better through and beyond COVID-19.

BITC believes purpose will be a guiding light to businesses in their immediate responses but particularly in long-term strategic planning for the future. During this session we will consider what role stakeholders play in encouraging and supporting businesses to take this approach, particularly investors.

Join this interactive session, not only to hear more about the experiences from some of our leading responsible businesses but also to share your own insights.

Find out how your organisation can get involved in our campaign to radically change the expectations and impact of responsible business. Get involved at: Responsible Business Building Back Better
