US: Global Partnerships Week 2015 kick-off today

Recognizing critical role of PPPs in development and diplomacy

On March 9, 2015, the U.S. Department of State, in collaboration with Concordia and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) will kick-off its annual Global Partnerships Week (GPW) celebration in recognition of the critical role that public-private partnerships play in advancing diplomacy and development around the world.

Throughout one week each March, GPW encourages public and private organizations everywhere to engage in events that celebrate existing public-private partnerships and explore the potential for shared value collaborations. From large-scale events to intimate networking gatherings and everything in between, GPW events connect governments, corporations, civil society and faith-based organizations, diaspora communities, and academic institutions to each other as potential partners, supporters and solutions providers—providing opportunities to embrace and explore creative collaborations that enhance diplomacy and development throughout the international community.
