The Center for Global Development’s community of investors plays a crucial role in our efforts to discover and promote practical ways to reduce global poverty and inequality. CGD benefits from those who join in our deliberations and support our work.
This is where the Partners Council comes in. The Partners Council is a forum where CGD convenes highly-respected actors committed to making the world a more prosperous, just, and safe place for us all. Business and civic leaders benefit from our well-informed, independent, and data-driven analysis. And CGD in turn learns from our Partners Council colleagues as the private sector plays an increasingly significant role in development.
As part of a non-governing body of the Center, Partners Council members are able to engage directly with CGD experts and our network through private breakfasts, preferred access to briefings and events, tailored communications, and more. Through these benefits, they gain insight on issues that are relevant to their businesses and exchange valuable perspectives on shared global challenges.
Center for Global Development Partners’ Council members appreciate CGD’s governing principles of transparency and independence: They understand we do not accept funding that seeks to impose limits or restrictions on CGD’s independence in research, findings, conclusions or resulting publications.
Members of the Partners Council enjoy frequent opportunities to engage with CGD experts and networks at private events in Washington, reserved seating at public events, and participation in our annual Summit.
