The U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and Impact 2030 are a very important topic for companies right now. As companies are trying to globally expand their community efforts, they are facing a very complex road. The Strategic Community Impact Symposium can help you navigate that road. And Giving Thoughts readers receive a $300 discount on registration (see code in post below). Click here to register today.

With technology making our world so much smaller, a 24/7 news cycle that cannot be ignored, threats of terrorism throughout the world, huge climatic changes causing environmental challenges, and the continued challenges of hunger, women’s rights, refugees and so much more—making an impact is not such an easy thing, and in fact it is daunting.

This year's Strategic Community Impact Symposium will follow up on the December 2015 event, with an ironic focus: A specific look at the big global picture. First, a better understanding of large world problems in the light of the SDGs, where success is happening, where it is not, and what is the current high level thinking on these complex issues—by those in the United Nations and other large NGOs that are playing a large role in addressing these causes. Secondly, the myriad ways that companies are using their resources—human, financial, skills, products, business acumen and more—to try to make an impact on these issues, as well as specific models and examples that attendees can learn from and modify and use for their own company programs. Thirdly, inspiration!

A few of the highlighted sessions include:

  • The Global Economic Picture and U.N.’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
  • Impact 2030: Companies Addressing the SDGs
  • Emerging Markets and the Community
  • Addressing the World’s Most Serious Needs
