New SPERI/APPG on Inclusive Growth event in Parliament | 21 February – Registration now open

Inclusive GrowthEarlier this month SPERI launched a new partnership with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Inclusive Growth. On Tuesday 21st February SPERI and the APPG will hold our first joint event in Parliament when a panel of leading UK and international thinkers will come together to present views on the ‘state of the inclusive growth debate’.

How to achieve inclusive growth is fast emerging as a key issue in politics, academia, business, faith groups and civil society the world over. The panel will discuss policies and ideas about how to tackle rising inequality and secure a new consensus on inclusive growth before taking part in a Q&A. Join us to share your views and contribute to the debate.

Speakers will include:

  • Gabriela Ramos, OECD Chief of Staff, G20 sherpa and coordinator of the OECD’s work on inclusive growth
  • Michael Jacobs, Director of the Commission on Economic Justice, IPPR
  • Charlotte Alldritt, Inclusive Growth Commission, Director of Public Services and Communities, RSA
  • Rick Samans. Head of the Centre for the Global Agenda, Member of the Managing Board, World Economic Forum

The discussion will be chaired by Liam Byrne MP, Chair of the APPG, and our Co-Director Tony Payne will talk about the new partnership between SPERI and the APPG.

The event will take place between 18.30-20.00pm on Tuesday 21 February in the Wilson Room in Portcullis House, Parliament.

Register your place here.

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