This year we are excited to announce a number of partnerships (in the spirit of SDG 17: Partnerships for the Goals) to help us connect across silos to Discover, Connect, and Scale solutions by 2030.

Strategic Partners

With our initial convening partners:

How can we be the greatest lever for change?

This question guided our team in selecting which SDGs to focus on for the second year of Convening17. All of the SDGs are important, however in our conversations with participants last year, some emerged as being foundational to the success of others. Gender Equality - for all people to have equal opportunity to succeed in life is a thread that is woven across all other goals. For us to succeed in education, all children must have the opportunity to learn. To end hunger and poverty, we must engage all people to build communities of abundance.
