Eastern and Southern Management Institute (ESAMI), a co-lead partner in the NWO/WOTRO project 'Inclusive Business Models in Africa', has been collaborating with the Rotterdam School of Management/Erasmus University and the Netherlands Africa Business Council (NABC) in carrying out a number of activities including Research and Executive trainings. To share their research findings with the stakeholders, and offer further tips on how companies can become more inclusive they are organizing a series of stakeholder dialogues in Kenya, Tanzania, Rwanda and Addis Abeba.
The stakeholder dialogue for Ethiopia will take place on Friday 23 September at the Golden Tulip Hotel in Addis Ababa. The meeting will start at 09:00 and will end at 17:00 with a small network reception.
The research project is funded by the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs and aspires to understand how Inclusive Business Models can be deployed for a competitive business strategy while at the same time contributing to inclusive growth.
The stakeholder dialogues will bring together leading European and African Companies that are frontrunners in the areas of inclusive business strategy and environmental sustainability. During these dialogues, discussions on how to overcome dilemmas and trigger tipping points to become more inclusive will be linked to your own personal business cases. The stakeholder dialogues will provide input on how to adjust your current business model to become more inclusive.
