CGI Starts Today!
There's nothing quite like CGI to bring out the best in our fellow corporations.
CGI 2010 starts today in New York. These annual meetings bring together heads of state, CEOs, philanthropists and NGO leaders to discuss the biggest issues facing global development today. And it's not just talk - attendees use CGI as a platform to make commitments that tackle these issues head on. CGI members have made nearly 1,700 commitments valued at $57 billion, which have already improved more than 220 million lives in 170 countries. And this year's meeting promises to be one of the most buzz-worthy yet.
This year, you don't have to be a head of state or global CEO to go to CGI - the sessions are being webcast live on the CGI website.
Opening plenary starts in just under an hour at 10am Eastern time. Don't miss the girls and women session later today at 1:30pm EST!
