Toolkit: Own the Conversation, Drive the Change Conversation Kit

This toolkit is designed to help business leaders run strategic conversations, prompting the scale of action needed to deliver on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) or Global Goals.
There are not enough businesses aware of, or strategically engaging with, the Global Goals in order for the 2030 targets to be met1 2. Leaders must engage their peers to encourage strategic, practical engagement with the Global Goals and accelerate progress to deliver on them by 2030.
Business in the Community's (BITC) Own the Conversation, Drive the Change conversation kit empowers leaders to identify and reflect on what to change, and how to act, in order to help achieve the Global Goals, driving change both within their own business and influencing their business partners. To support these discussions, BITC has created this toolkit to help leaders drive change within a business and with its partners, starting with a strategic conversation.
This pack is made up of three parts. Part One: Planning the conversations, provides the information needed to plan and organise the conversations. Part Two: The Global Goals, offers an overview of the Global Goals to equip business leaders with the relevant content to shape and deliver the conversations. Part Three: Communications resources, provides collateral that businesses may find useful in both setting up conversations and communicating externally about their involvement.
BITC’s ambition is for a hundred senior leaders to commit to facilitate these conversations, one in their own business and one with a business partner. This will help us to reach at least 200 businesses in total by September 2020 and scaling reach beyond this. These conversations will in turn drive greater awareness and strategic engagement with the Global Goals.
