We are leading the Bristol Inclusive Economy Initiative
The Inclusive Economy Initiative engages in research with local and regional businesses and government, as well as public and voluntary sectors to work towards a fair and inclusive low carbon economy.
School of Management’s Professor Martin Parker is the Director of the Initiative, he comments, “The Bristol Inclusive Economy Initiative involves a team of academics from many different disciplines who are interested in working with local businesses to grow the new economy we all need.”
As a School, we’re excited to see what the Inclusive Economy Initiative will continue to tackle.
