Description & Coverage
Description:

While many scholars, governments, and corporations have expressed that they would like to play a hand in developing an inclusive and equitable society, few have achieved the goal. Vulnerable communities around the world have suffered systemically and have been left on their own to succeed economically despite decades of disadvantage. It is essential to consider these communities and their sociological and systemic factors when considering the future of work in order to succeed in developing a truly sustainable and equitable society.

Socio-Economic Disparities, Vulnerable Communities, and the Future of Work and Entrepreneurship discusses the journey of vulnerable communities in the pursuit of entrepreneurship. It further investigates the strategies and action that governments and organizations can take to cultivate an inclusive environment within the future of work. Covering topics such as economic agency, equitable access, and affirmative action, this premier reference source is an excellent resource for policymakers, government officials, non-profit organizations, business leaders and executives, human resource managers, economists, students and faculty of higher education, researchers, and academicians.
