UNA-GB's annual UN Day Luncheon gathers leaders from the business, policy, and academic communities in the Greater Boston area for an engaging dialogue on world affairs and an opportunity to network with other globally conscious individuals and organizations.
This year, we are pleased to have Gillian Sorensen, Senior Adviser at the United Nations Foundation, as our keynote speaker. Ms. Sorensen has achieved a distinguished career at the UN serving two Secretaries-General, Kofi Annan and Boutros Boutros-Ghali. During her service Ms. Sorensen was responsible for 4,000 non-governmental organizations. Ms. Sorensen is also a national advocate on matters relating to the UN - U.S. relationship. With her unique insider perspective Ms. Sorensen explores topical issues such as foreign policy, humanitarian relief, global public health, human rights, and regions of conflict.
Funds raised from ticket sales and sponsorships at the UN Day Luncheon directly support UNA-GB's community events and classroom-based programs, which serve more than 5,000 participants annually in greater Boston.
Attendees of the UN Day Luncheon represent individuals and companies who are actively engaged in global affairs, as well as who have a commitment to global education in the Boston community and a desire to foster dialogue among a diverse set of companies, peoples and nations.
In addition to featuring Gillian Sorensen's keynote remarks about global citizenship in the 21st century, we will also be introducing our first-ever Global Corporate Citizenship honor roll, recognizing the Massachusetts-based companies who have signed on to key business principles through the UN Global Compact. It is important to highlight the leaders in our community making a difference around sustainable development and corporate citizenship. See list of signatories here.
Join us in celebrating 66 years of peace, prosperity and justice and the important work being done here locally in Boston around global citizenship!
Think global, act local!
