THOUGHTS FROM REGIONAL LEADERS
What is the most interesting or inspiring aspect of your work right now?
The role Global Impact is playing in the world’s adoption of the Global Goals for Sustainable Development (SDGs) is what is most inspiring to me at the moment. In 2015, 193 countries unanimously approved the adoption of 17 SDGs to be achieved by 2030. According to the United Nations Development Program, the goals are designed “to end poverty, hunger and inequality, take action on climate change and the environment, improve access to health and education, and build strong institutions and partnerships, and more.” Global Impact is actively working across sectors—civic, public, and private—to increase engagement with the goals and help ensure their success.
What does being a part of the WTCSE community mean to you?
Being a part of the WTCSE community is an opportunity be a part of one of the most significant concentrations of public, private and nonprofit organizations focused on both international trade and development issues. It is an honor to be part of such a vibrant community and I enjoy supporting the community’s efforts, as well as spreading the word about the fantastic work being done.
