Course Description

Businesses of all sizes have a role to play in reducing poverty and inequality. Achieving more equitable economic opportunities and prosperity requires driving systemic change for low-income and marginalized people historically excluded from full economic, social, and political participation and opportunity.

Focusing on four components of the inclusive business framework — customers, workforce, supply chain, and governance and ownership — developed by EY and Acumen, this short course will teach you how to move away from a shareholder-centric model to one that values the human contributions across your business's key operations.

You’ll learn from successful business leaders who have put this framework into practice and create your own stakeholder analysis to identify opportunities to drive inclusive change in and through your business operations.

*Note: To learn the three additional components of the Inclusive Business framework, sign up for our Inclusive Business: Redefine Success course.

This course consists of 1.5 hours of videos/readings and 1.5 hours of reflections/application.*
