Inclusion, Inc. is an initiative of the Institute for Business in the Global Context. Through original research, tailored training programs, and events, the initiative explores economic development through the lens of inclusion and aims to re-define how business, government, and non-governmental actors can collaborate to create sustained and broad-based prosperity.
The factors that define the “context” are different across the developing world, but, more significantly, they are different from the environments in which digital innovations are developed – whether it is in Silicon Valley or in Boston or in tech enclaves in India and China. In these high-tech pockets, context is almost invisible: institutions function, data is the coin of the realm and a digital application’s “killer” value proposition rules the day. In this way, tech companies operate from a distance; they are not usually embedded within the local environments.
The Inclusion, Inc. Conference Report builds on dynamic discussions exploring the questions raised not just over the two-day event, but throughout the last year of in-depth research and conversation around sustainable and inclusive business.
