BSR is a partner of Devex World 2018, which brings together a truly diverse set of actors from the worlds of government, business, technology, finance, NGOs, and more. Devex World shines a spotlight on the future of global development, how the industry is changing, and how the world’s most innovative practitioners and enterprises are changing the way global development work gets done.

Thinkers and doers, changemakers and expert practitioners will converge by the hundreds at The Mead Center for American Theater in Washington, D.C. on June 12, 2018. Expect and intense day of programming and networking with a mix of big name leaders you know and people you’ve never heard of but are doing some of the most fascinating and innovative work in the world. Among attendees and speakers are Malcolm Gladwell, the head of the World Health Organization, the First Lady of Afghanistan, Facebook’s Africa policy director, a Daily Show writer, two of President Trump’s top foreign aid appointees, Rwanda’s former health minister, billionaire philanthropists, the founder of Teach for All, and a financial inclusion startup that just raised $50 million and hired away Uber’s chief data scientist. 

We enter a future where new models reign. No sector, no function, no professional can afford to miss the data revolution or arrive late to innovations transforming lives at scale. This more global, dynamic, competitive ecosystem is brimming with possibility.

Devex World is not just about understanding this future. It’s about charting it for you, your organization, and the world.
