Business in the Community stands for Responsible Business.  It is a business-led charity focused on promoting responsible business practice.  Opportunity Now and Race for Opportunity are the gender and race campaigns for Business in the Community.  The aim of Opportunity Now is to increase women’s success at work because it is good for business and good for society.  Race for Opportunity works towards a more balanced and proportionate representation of Black, African and Minority Ethnic (BAME) people at all levels within the workforce.

The Foundation’s aim is simple: to offer women better access to business development support, networks and finance in areas of the world where they lack equal opportunities.  Research by the OECD shows that women tend to invest 90% of their income back into their families, so their success is critical to the ability of their children to escape poverty too.  And yet, women find it harder to obtain access to finance, the right training and good advice.  The Foundation is a response to these challenges.
