A Shared Vision for Impact Sourcing: The Rockefeller Foundation gathering sets an agenda for supply, demand and infrastructure
The Rockefeller Foundation recently hosted stakeholders from major outsourcing destinations and a range of geographic regions at its Bellagio Center in Italy to discuss how to scale the Impact Sourcing sector. This was the first time critical players representing different parts of the industry came together to articulate a shared vision of how the outsourcing sector can create a new paradigm by placing social impact as key part of its overall value proposition.
For the past two and a half years, The Rockefeller Foundation has been supporting work to foster the development of Impact Sourcing – outsourcing jobs for poor or vulnerable people without the opportunity for alternative employment. With a $512 billion, and growing, global outsourcing market, this work seeks to enable more equitable growth by allowing youth in Africa to tap into potential job opportunities.
