On March 9, the U.S. State Department kicks off Global Partnerships Week, in collaboration with USAID and Concordia.  Join PYXERA Global for a Google Hangouts conversation on "The Importance of Partnership" Thursday, March 12 at 11:30 ET.

To move the needle on any of the Sustainable Development Goals, we need “tri-sector partnerships" championed by tri-sector leaders.  How can the global engagement community create, maintain, and capitalize on the power of this kind of partnership? Join Deirdre White, CEO of PYXERA Global as she speaks with leaders, CEO of PeaceTech Lab, Sheldon Himelfarb and CEO of PSI, Karl Hofmann to talk about how their commitments to partnership makes game-changing social impact  possible.  You’ll find out how you can drive for tri-sector partnership at your organization.

Goal #17 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (as currently drafted) is to, “Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development.” This goal is a methodology at the core of PYXERA Global’s approach and is key to achieving the worthy aspirations of the SDGs.
