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’s reach, influence, and impact relies on the many corporations and individuals who join in our deliberations and support our work.
This is where the Partners Council comes in. As business and civic leaders benefit from our well-informed, independent, and data-driven analysis, the Partners Council serves as a vehicle to convene highly-respected actors who are committed to making the world a more prosperous, just and safe place for us all. Partners Council members support CGD through financial contributions, by attracting other potential supporters, and by serving as advocates for our mission in their own professional and social communities.
As part of a non-governing body of the Center, Partners Council members are encouraged to engage directly with CGD experts, policymakers, corporate representatives, and others through private breakfasts, preferred access to briefings and events, tailored communications, and more. Through these benefits, they are able to gain insight on policy issues that are relevant to their businesses, exchange valuable perspectives on shared global challenges, and expand their own networks.
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.
