#Strategy and Integration


In September, the UN adopted the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs, or Global Goals), laying out a wide-ranging global agenda for sustainable growth through 2030. While the goals are intended to engage the private sector, many companies are still figuring out how they should engage with the SDGs.  In other words, the big question for many BSR members is: What does this mean for us?

Please join a breakfast workshop for an open conversation among BSR member companies on the implications, challenges, and opportunities of the SDGs. You’ll learn from BSR experts, company speakers, and fellow attendees.

Speakers

  • Shira Kilcoyne, Director, Government Affairs International, GlaxoSmithKline
  • Daniel T. Bross, Senior Director, Global Corporate Citizenship, Microsoft Corporation
  • Laura Gitman, Senior Vice President, BSR
  • Sara Enright, Manager, BSR
