The U.S. State Department kicked off Global Partnerships Week yesterday, in collaboration with USAID and Concordia. Join PYXERA Global for a Google Hangouts On Air conversation on "The Importance of Partnership" this 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 Kris Balderston, General Manager of FleishmanHillard’s Washington, D.C., office, Karl Hofmann, CEO of PSI, and Sheldon Himelfarb, CEO of PeaceTech Lab, 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.

What is SDG #17?

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.
