The OECD Workshop on Inclusive Growth engaged a diverse group of OECD and international experts, policy makers, corporate and philanthropic foundations, non-governmental organisations, international institutions and regional banks in the discussion to pave the way for defining and designing policies that will deliver inclusive growth.

The workshop is part of a broader initiative on Inclusive Growth which is being launched with the support of the Ford Foundation. The first phase of the initaitive will aim at identifying how to define the concept and measure it, while its second phase will shed light on the policy options and tradeoffs that are pro-growth and pro-people.
