The Sustainable Development Goals: The Role of the Business Community

March 5, 2015, 3:50 - 4:50 p.m.

Women and girls are most often disproportionately affected by the challenges that the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) will aim to conquer; these challenges are so complex and critical that they can only be overcome through effective, inspired leadership and functional, practical partnerships. This panel will delve into specific partnership and leadership strategies that will help “reinforce the universal, integrated, and transformative nature” of the SDGs, as well as examine the importance of the private sector in ensuring that the SDGs are implemented at the country level.

Remarks

  • Amina J. Mohammed, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's Special Adviser on Post-2015 Development Planning

Panelists

  • Kathy Calvin, President and CEO, UN Foundation
  • Lori Harnick, General Manager, Citizenship & Public Affairs, Microsoft
