Council on Foundations: Leading Together – Annual Conference

Location: Dallas, TX


What is the role of philanthropy in “leaving no one behind” as political, economic, and social changes impact all of us, here in the U.S. and around the world?  How is U.S. philanthropy working with other sectors to address root causes of poverty and inequality?  In 2015, the U.S. government committed to working towards an ambitious framework of 17 goals, known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which aim to end extreme poverty, enhance gender equality, and ensure energy access, healthcare, and quality education for all.  Hear leaders who directly helped shape this framework discuss what they have learned engaging across sectors to achieve these important goals and how all foundations help achieve the SDGs, no matter their organizational size, footprint, or focus.
