"Moving the Sustainable Development Goals
from Aspiration to Achievement"
November 10-12, 2015
In September 2015, the United Nations formalized the Sustainable Development Goals, which provide a foundation for action to solve some of the world’s most difficult challenges. At PYXERA Global, we see this as a tremendous opportunity to harness the capabilities of the private, public, and social sector, catalyzing and accelerating action to make progress against these goals. The Global Engagement Forum on November 10-12, 2015 will bring together leaders and organizations from across the three sectors to discuss how best to partner and move from aspiration to achievement.
The two-day Global Engagement Forum will focus on how strategic partnerships among public, private, and social sector organizations can effectively address the Sustainable Development Goals through strategic program alignment and collaboration.
Don't miss Stuart Hart (Capitalism at the Crossroads), Sheryl WuDunn (A Path Appears), Sue Norton (Pepsico), C.D. Glin (Rockefeller Foundation), Milan Samani (Leadership Laboratories), Trever Gunn (Medtronic) and dozens of other leaders for a practical and inspirational exploration of how tri-sector partnerships can lead the way to a better future.
