Keynote: Collaboration and co-operation for a fairer world – Creating a Co-op where opportunity knocks for everyone, and what you can learn from it
13 Oct 2021
CULTURE AND PURPOSE
The Co-op is over 175 years old, built on principles, values, and a purpose which still holds true today: to address unfairness and injustice. To be committed to creating a fairer world for all, Co-op believes this must be a decade of collective action. In this keynote, Co-op Group CEO, Steve Murrells, will talk about how creating a safe and inclusive culture alongside a set of cutting edge initiatives has accelerated Co-op on its journey to supporting aspiration, tackling inequality, and creating opportunities for employees across all walks of life to succeed. By taking a co-operative approach, from innovative apprenticeship programmes and working with inclusive suppliers, to using data to better understand issues of race inequality in the communities they serve, Co-op is calling on others to move the dial together, to create fairer opportunities for all.
