The global impact of COVID-19 has exposed policies that maintain and even promote structural inequities, and in some cases, indifference to suffering. Companies responding to the many facets of the crisis understand the inextricable link between health outcomes of their employees and customers, with their own corporate health. Successful companies are proving that agility and an openness to new ways of working are better able to meet urgent needs with innovative solutions and partnerships.
Join the Shared Value Initiative and FSG for a conversation with leaders from Abbott, BD (Becton Dickinson), and the Rockefeller Foundation to discuss opportunities to build equitable access in the face of mounting health disparities. Abbott and BD will discuss what it takes to bring new innovations to healthcare workers and patients in record time. We will explore the lessons they learned, how they might sustain those efforts to tackle the next crisis, and what can be applied to addressing the systemic healthcare issues that continue to challenge society. The Rockefeller Foundation, a renowned cross-sector leader and collaborator, will illuminate where critical change is needed and how transformative partnerships are essential to repairing broken systems and improving health access.
