Power Breakfast Meeting
October 15, 2019
The morning exactly after the MGGLB Forum, we the Global Compact Network Lebanon (GCNL) hosted a Power Breakfast Meeting with our board of directors to discuss how to strengthen recruitment of corporations to our Local Network. Our guest speaker who came all the way from the Newyork, Ms. Susan Allchurch is the Chief, Outreach and Engagement Officer of the United Nations Global Compact (UNGC).
Ms. Allchurch emphasized the importance of widening our local network and inviting more companies to join, as a means to raise awareness on our common mission of achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). She successfully delivered a presentation on the value proposition of joining the global compact network describing the added prosperity that corporations can achieve if they work on the SDGs. Therefore, corporations will assume a new social responsibility that helps improve the welfare of the country and contribute to sustainable development that benefits their organizations as well.
In parallel, our board of directors invited their own partners to understand this value proposition and extend their willingness to join the local network.
