Business Fights Poverty held a week-long, highly interactive event during the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA76), bringing together voices and insights from across the globe, from business, NGOs, academia and government – to share the latest thinking on the nature of the challenges we face, and the nature of the solutions that are needed.
Among them, BP2C Executive Director Dr. Scott Ratzan joined Shamiram Feinglass (Danaher Corporation), Keith Kibirango (Crown Agents), Catalina Garcia (AB InBev), and Zahid Torres-Rahman (BFP) on a Partnership Session, hosted with BP2C, to discuss “Vaccine Literacy and Access: the Role of Business Partnerships.”
Each day, BFP brought together experts to explore a different theme around how we can “Rebuild Better” from the pandemic – Leadership, Gender, Livelihoods, Climate and Partnership. Practical lessons and new opportunities to collaborate were shared to tackle the big social and environmental challenges that we all care about.
The event is the latest in BFP’s series of Rebuild Better Summits, and was co-hosted with Unilever, and a number of partners, including the International Finance Corporation and the Corporate Responsibility Initiative at Harvard Kennedy School.
