The Roscongress Foundation is a socially oriented non-financial development institution and a major organizer of international conventions; exhibitions; and business, public, sporting, and cultural events. It was established in pursuance of a decision by the President of the Russian Federation.

The Foundation was established in 2007 with the aim of facilitating the development of Russia’s economic potential, promoting its national interests, and strengthening the country’s image. One of the roles of the Foundation is to comprehensively evaluate, analyse, and cover issues on the Russian and global economic agendas. It also offers administrative services, provides promotional support for business projects and attracting investment, and helps foster social entrepreneurship and charitable initiatives.

Each year, the Foundation’s events draw participants from 208 countries and territories, with more than 15,000 media representatives working on-site at Roscongress’ various venues. The Foundation benefits from analytical and professional expertise provided by 5000 people working in Russia and abroad. In addition, it works in close cooperation with 160 economic partners; industrialists’ and entrepreneurs’ unions; and financial, trade, and business associations from 75 countries worldwide.

The Roscongress Foundation has Telegram channels in Russian (t.me/Roscongress), English (t.me/RoscongressDirect), and Spanish (t.me/RoscongressEsp). Official website and Information and Analytical System of the Roscongress Foundation: roscongress.org.

Diverse people? Or what we know about inclusion
3 June 2021
The pandemic has pointedly highlighted the risks of inequality, including risks that are expressed in economic terms, and has removed inclusion from the category of charitable tasks to a must have and made it one of the global priorities for recovery from COVID-19. Despite many years of work to create an inclusive society, last year once again made us all think about what we know about inclusion, as it relates to each of us. Let’s talk about this after the premiere of Kirill Kosolapov’s short film ‘Different People’ about one of the outstanding and most unusual inclusive projects ‘Uppsala Circus’ and about the people who have been creating and supporting it for many years.
The past year was also a turning point for business. Diversity and inclusion programmes are entrenched on the agenda of large companies. What motivates them to support inclusive projects and develop inclusion within companies? Is it solely the need to insure their risks as part of the new ethics? Or is business beginning to see the value of diversity within a team?
The ubiquity of inclusion requires new formats, and today social media is one of the most effective tools, which aims to address mass audiences and is capable of bringing about positive change. Let’s talk about the power of art in creating a truly inclusive society.
