As disquiet grows about rising inequality, so does the urgency of finding new solutions to creating a model of growth that benefits all. At the start of 2017 how to achieve inclusive growth is fast emerging as a key issue in politics, academia, business, faith groups and civil society the world over.

A panel of leading UK and international thinkers will come together to present views on the ‘state of the inclusive growth debate’. and discuss the policies and ideas for tackling rising inequality and securing a new consensus on inclusive growth before taking part in a Q&A.

Please aim to arrive 15 minutes before the start of the event to allow time to pass through security at the Portcullis House entrance
