Innovation Hubs for more Diverse and Inclusive Cities
Impact Hub_Innovation

More than half the world’s population currently lives in cities – a proportion that will reach 70% by 2050 – which account for approximately 80% of GDP generated worldwide. But increasing inequality and exclusion in urban areas are undermining development progress – and threatening many lives.

We need to create more inclusive cities – to make sure they provide equal rights and opportunities, as well as better living conditions for all.

What are businesses and entrepreneurs doing about it?

Entrepreneurs are not only reinventing the future through innovative solutions, but they’re also positively impacting the present by playing a role in creating decent work opportunities and economic growth. However, there’s still much to be done to ensure that companies take a systematic approach and bold steps to strengthen inclusion and promote diversity across the globe.

There is plenty of evidence that diverse and inclusive businesses are more likely to make better, bolder decisions, radically innovate and enhance financial performance. What actions can businesses take to celebrate and support diversity and inclusion in innovative ways – both in their work and their workplace? How to ensure that they are effectively engaging their teams and partners in creating a long-lasting inclusive culture? What practices do the most diverse organizations engage in?

In this event, we will learn about examples of the work we are developing at the Impact Hub Network, both locally and globally, to build more just and inclusive societies.

Either through our inclusive entrepreneurship support programs, within our community of impact-driven entrepreneurs, creators, and innovators, or by co-creating inclusive entrepreneurship policy frameworks, we are determined to enable inclusive and sustainable innovation at scale – and build an inclusive work environment where diversity is fostered, respected and celebrated.

For this purpose, we will hold an engaging conversation with three outstanding panellists:

  • Grace Rodriguez, CEO and Executive Director of Impact Hub Houston
  • Kamran Rashid, Co-Founder and CEO of Impact Hub Bradford
  • Talita Matos, Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Consultant, Co-Founder of Singuê and former CEO of Impact Hub Floripa
