Bloomberg Equality Summit

Inequality remains one of India’s most pressing problems. Economically, socially, culturally, digitally, the chasm is wide. India has one of the world’s most skewed sex ratios -914 girls to every 1,000 boys according to the latest census. The gap between the rich and the poor remains wide. The wealthiest one percent controls more than 70% of the country’s wealth. Caste and class remain dangerous fault lines. It’s a pivotal time in India’s history. But, 72 years after independence, the world’s largest democracy has an opportunity to get it right.

On October 15, 2019, Bloomberg will bring its flagship Bloomberg Equality Summit to Asia for the first time. The inaugural event – the first of its kind in India – will be held in the financial capital, Mumbai. The conversations will move beyond the universally accepted business case for diversity to create an actionable plan for inclusion.
