About the Oxford Business Poverty Conference 2016
The Second Annual Conference on Business and Poverty, being held on 4-5 July at Saïd Business School at the University of Oxford, will focus on business, social impact and growth.
Co-hosted by Business Fights Poverty and supported by Diageo, the Conference will bring together over 300 experts and practitioners and will include an interactive mix of expert panels, delegate-led sessions and action-focused workshops.
Over 80 Speakers will address topics as diverse as the social impact of supply chains; how impact investment can bring new resources to create jobs and fight poverty; and the role of educational institutions in interrupting cycles of poverty.
A special feature of this conference is that lunch sessions are set up so that participants can talk and plan in small groups about what can be done to address issues of poverty through business.
On both days, Business Fights Poverty will be running parallel action-focused sessions around specific challenges to harnessing and scaling the positive impact of business on people and planet. Learn more about Business Fights Poverty’s Challenges here: http://businessfightspoverty.org/challenges/
Attendance is free. Delegates are asked to cover the costs of the lunches and dinners, which include the opportunity to dine at two of Oxford’s prestigious colleges.
