The inclusion of the diverse human race has become a global priority for the public, private and voluntary sectors. While exceptional efforts are in place, the sustainability of such inclusionary practices is still in question. To advance the agenda of building an inclusive and sustainable community for all, BD Foundation has worked with more than 100,000+ inspiring changemakers, women leaders, male champions and institutions all focused on promoting inclusive growth. Following the same intent, BD Think Tank, an initiative of BD Foundation, will be holding its first core committee meeting for this year on July 11, 2018.
As a global think tank, this initiative seeks to promote inclusion and sustainability as a business agenda. The aim is to bring together leaders from business, institutions, academia, nonprofit organizations and government agencies to create and execute a plan promoting innovation and growth. A global collaborative platform, BD Think Tank will have participation from diverse minds to convert ‘Intents into Actions.’

- The goals of BD Think Tank are 5 pronged and include advocating sustainable and inclusive business practices & policies, establishing gender equality, ensuring accessibility and opportunities at all levels & non-discrimination.
- We acknowledge that the achievement of such diverse goals requires multiple levels of intervention and a meaningful thought leadership. Therefore, we have identified 4 major levers to advance the agenda of inclusion and sustainability.

First Step towards Change
