Clinton to President Bachelet-  In many ways chile is a leading example in latin america ,
You were President of chile in 2006  and now from 2014- and you were the first leader of un women 2010-2013, whats different 2006 to 2014; and why run again -
MB I just couldnt help it!
in 2000 189 countries pledged millennium development goals
 - one of main goals was alleviating extreme poverty
by 2010 sort of attained this goal as have most goals
but  world is still falling behind
1 in 8 still have hunger
1.2 billion in poverty
2 goals didnt do well were education and environment
now in 2015 what are new objectives we need to put all together
 i think inequality remains core issue
how we build much more inclusive not only global community but out of each country
eg in chile my case it was new what i found in 2nd term
because even though we have progressed a lot
people understand progress means we need to improve in many areas like education, health, pensions
at same time as ensuring economic growth, and to ensure wellbeing for all our citizens
so i would say we have done well in some issues but there is so much to do
and you were talking about jordan and syrian refugees - when we look at crises
and conflicts around the world there are many different factors and I think this involves difficulties for societies to include -eg political inclusion, religious inclusion, social inclusion - so I think we can have peacekeeping operations and a lot of things but we need to tackle the roots and structural problems that are producing conflicts so if we want a world in peace we need to advance much more in an inclusive and just world for all (ends about 5.30)
Clinton To King of Jordan :
 :what do you want us to know positive about jordan and the regoin
both the good story and the challenge is 60% of jordan is under 30
for small countries like jordan that is a ;positive thing
young highly educated tech savvy very resilient
jordan survived all shocks of the region because of the people
we have opened our doors welcoming refugees as it is the right thing to do
we're suffering but keeping lour heads above water
positive (private public partnerships) PPPS - have invested in youth but unless we get help with burden of refugees from international community - aid accounts for 39% of help (61% comes from our own economy)- how do we give faiith  to young people
when i say 60% is under 30the same sort of youth profile across the region
(where youth feel abandoned)
we need a comprehensive map across all countries in batlte between bad and good (eg isis offers young 1000 dollars a month income which in this region is a large number)
..we need international communities to watch our back  (11.25
clinton if you could wave magic wand and guarantee investment in jordan what would you want most
 we have a lot of ppp opportunities - way back you advised us on alternative energy -and to  invest in ict - base for healthcare and medicine, hi tech creative industries and vocational training so what we are interested in companies interested in those innovative industries to help create jobs anduse jordan a centre especially for alternative energies to help other countries
we went to tesla for example, to convince them because they were not interested in looking at middle east market because they thought all mid east were oil rich countries so we said look at jordan, palestine, lebanon, egypt . otther countries - invest in jordan as  be a gateway to other countries and alternative energy so creating that capability to make jordan nucleus to other countries
we have access through ifda's to billion consumers and geographically good and bad to so many different directions  (14.10)
clinton to michelle B - you did this un womens job and here you are first female president to do a second term , and it looks as if brazil will have a second term female president - what lessons can we draw from this (much of world thinks latin america as macho place. so what does this mean is there more room for women leadership)
michele B: we should not misunderstand ... if you look at chile you have female president of republic , senate, trade union, 2 biggest universities - so this prevents vetoes of women though there are still a lot of macho men in latin america so not perfect world but what we have worked on economic and political and symbolic empowerment - when you see that women are able to be in very important positions and do it well - then its a model for others
so i think in terms of how we empower women we need to see some things I have learned :
first women still have a lot of discrimination in a lot of cultures - even in advanced countries eg there is salary discrimination (norway only counter example) violence against women all over world; one size doesnt fit all - different cultural challenges - need to continue to work
23.oo  what would you like audience to know about inequality issue
first I always speak to business people - doing 2 contrasting things simultaneously:  transformation structure and day to day continuity

 education reform not to lose anyone talents, improve our productivity and innovation in way
everyone wins - when people can contribute to society ;
 change how education has been seen in our country in chile everyone has access at primary, secondary  BUT what we want is not only access
we need quality education for all
change paradigm behind the education model
solve issue of money; in our country families that have money spend much more on education
so we need equality of education , this includes tax reform - more going to education and health; access to education with high levels of quality so we dont lose anyone's contributions to the country
so I tell the business community the real threat is we dont tackle inequality even as gdp goes up - that's the real threat, the lack of social cohesion - so I am asking how to do all this with government and in a peaceful way
end 28.00)

Reimagining Impact

Since 2005—through great imagination, partnerships, and hard work—CGI members have tried, sometimes failed, and most often succeeded in turning their ideas into action to tackle global challenges. To accomplish this, they have designed better and more ambitious Commitments to Action, and mobilized their resources and partnerships to form creative networks of collaboration across the world. For CGI’s 10th Annual Meeting, the 2014 annual theme of Reimagining Impact will:

• highlight and celebrate the transformative ideas and actions of CGI members over the last decade
• explore how members measure and assess the outcomes of their commitments
• imagine bold ideas for CGI members to achieve even greater impact going forward

Operation Change: Amplifying Impact Through Partnerships and Storytelling

Commitments Spotlight hosted by Starkey Hearing Foundation


Successful leaders in business, philanthropy, and policy value the power of partnerships to drive global impact, and the rapid growth of social media and digital content has created a unique opportunity to effectively harness that power. This Commitments Spotlight will showcase real-life stories and explore successful partnerships at the intersection of storytelling and technology, with a special focus on Operation Change, a 10-part documentary television series and an interactive web platform that highlights the power of philanthropic partnerships around the globe. Brief clips from the series will be followed by a live discussion featuring Starkey Hearing Foundation’s William Austin and Steven Sawalich, as well as Starkey partners Donna Karan and Barbara Bush. CGI members are encouraged to stop by this Commitments Spotlight before attending their chosen breakout session to discover ways that their organizations can inspire action by telling their stories and fostering meaningful, sustainable partnerships.

Can we fail faster, bigger, and better for greater impact?


The light bulb, the polio vaccine, and the Internet—some of the most transformative achievements in recent history have resulted from efforts that initially failed, but were then re-envisioned to achieve success. Forward-thinking organizations embrace challenges and ‘failures’ as integral to innovation and iterative improvement, acknowledging that big impact can only be achieved through big bets. In this session, CGI members will debate the following questions:

• Can we promote an openness to failure in the social impact sector when investments are at stake and incentives do not promote higher risk-taking?
• Can we create conditions that allow for shorter turnaround time and better foster innovation in the development of products, services, and programs?
• Can we fail often enough at the scale necessary to lead to significant progress?

Leadership That Matters


The quality of leaders in today’s complex global economy will depend on their vision, strategy, and capacity to adapt rapidly. In this session, filmed by CGI’s 2014 broadcast partner PBS and moderated by host Charlie Rose, CGI members will hear guests share their perspectives on addressing systemic economic, social, and environmental challenges. Speakers will share their views on how members can best leverage partnerships with the private sector, civil society, and government to achieve the greatest impact in their efforts.

How can smallholder farmers and fishers increase their economic opportunities?


Over 80 percent of the food consumed in the developing world comes from 500 million smallholder farmers and 60 percent of the global fish catch is hauled by smallholder fishers. However, while smallholder farmers and fishers play a major role in feeding the world, they sometimes struggle to feed their own families and communities. Lack of tools, resources and opportunities prohibits smallholder farmers and fishers from scaling their production and increasing their income. In this session, CGI members will reimagine how to:

• support farmers and fishers in scaling their production while protecting forests and oceans
• increase access to financing opportunities, technical assistance, and business skills to achieve higher market value for smallholders’ yields
• invest in women, who are the majority in the agricultural and fishery labor force, to close the gender-based gap and improve livelihoods

Franchising Global Health Systems


Many of the most innovative and effective global health interventions have been proven through successful pilot programs, yet subsequently failed to reach scale. Meanwhile, the private sector has developed efficient and effective models for expanding businesses worldwide.

This session will bring together CGI members—specifically business leaders with expertise in franchising and global health innovators—to share scale and replication strategies which can be applied to global health delivery.

Scaling Effective Educational Interventions


For every project that improves access to and the quality of education, questions related to scalability naturally emerge. Expanding educational interventions to reach broader populations is a goal of many organizations involved in these efforts—as success is achieved, the immediate focus is shifted to scaling up. However, challenges frequently materialize when attempting to bring these interventions to scale and if implemented, many face mixed results.

This session will focus on the variables that determine if an educational intervention is ready to be scaled. Specific successes in educational interventions will be highlighted and CGI members will consider the feasibility of bringing these interventions to scale.

Scaling Sustainable Buildings Action Network


Established in 2010, the Sustainable Buildings Action Network brings CGI members together to collaborate on a range of topics including healthy buildings and materials, green schools, affordable green housing, developing energy and water positive buildings, and energy-efficiency. The Action Network engages various organizations from fields such as construction, education, and public health to ensure the generation of comprehensive solutions—facilitated by the sharing of best practices, exchange of ideas, and the creation of additional partnerships and cooperation in the subject area.

This session will allow CGI members to discuss new Commitments to Action in development, share progress on existing commitments, and identify opportunities for future collaboration. It will place a special emphasis on technology and financing, energy efficiency, healthy buildings, and the related Commitments to Action that are being launched at the 10th Annual Meeting.



The Modern Business Imperative: LGBT Rights Around the World


Today’s business environment reflects the great momentum among companies to prioritize lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality as a business imperative, particularly in the United States. Many companies signed the amicus brief urging the U.S. Supreme Court to strike down the Defense of Marriage Act or issued a public statement celebrating its defeat. Large consumer brands have experienced increased consumer support from ads or political statements supporting marriage equality. Simultaneously, however, the issue of gay rights is still a divisive political issue in the United States and in more than 80 countries around the world, homosexual acts are punishable by law.

In this session, CGI members will learn about current efforts underway to build inclusive communities and corporate workplaces, as well as discuss how to widen the scope of these approaches to support LGBT rights internationally.

The Syrian Crisis: Supporting Refugees and Host Communities


As the Syrian conflict enters its third year, the waves of refugees crossing borders into Jordan, Lebanon, Iraq, Egypt, and Turkey continues unabated. The UNHCR reports that, of the 3 million people that have fled Syria, women and children make up the vast majority and approximately 85 percent reside within host communities—differentiating this crisis from others and placing particular strain on the resources of host countries, specifically in the sectors of energy, livelihoods, health, and education.

Following President Clinton’s “Call to Action” to galvanize support for Jordan as it manages the influx of refugees, and given the worsening refugee situation in Lebanon and Turkey, this session will explore strategies for engaging the broader region in mitigating the negative impacts of one of the largest forced migrations of the 21st century. A high-level discussion including regional experts will focus on Commitments to Action providing cross-sector support for host communities as they integrate refugees, as well as promoting economic development in the region.

Tackling climate change head-on presents the greatest opportunity we have ever had to shift the world’s economy toward sustainable growth and long-term stability. To become smarter about managing the planet, the private sector, public sector, and civil society should double-down on proven solutions that provide economic opportunities and strengthen vital ecosystems. In this session, key leaders across sectors will reimagine how CGI members can:

• implement strategies that finance forest conservation, bolster ocean resilience, and support smallholder farmers
• support mainstream investors in their efforts to unlock the capital required to accelerate investments toward a low-carbon economy
• reinforce the critical role of women in promoting sustainable livelihoods and adapting to climate change, locally and globally

Women in Leadership: Measuring What Matters

Dinner hosted by Barclays


Women are significantly under-represented in corporate executive leadership, comprising less than 17 percent of boards of directors of Fortune 500 companies—a statistic that has not improved meaningfully in the last decade. Yet, a growing body of research shows that companies with more gender-diverse leadership may outperform those with less diversity. The increasing demand for socially responsible investing (“SRI”) has increased significantly in recent times, fueling investor interest in the theme of corporate gender diversity. The evening will feature an informative and thought-provoking agenda on the topic of women in leadership including a discussion led by a panel of leading industry specialists. Attendees will include representatives from leading US corporations, investors and thought leaders.

Beyond the MDGs: Leveraging Creative Partnerships to Solve Global Health Challenges

Dinner hosted by Procter & Gamble


The United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) have been a driving force behind improving the lives of the world’s most vulnerable populations. Three of the MDGs are focused on health, and significant progress has been made to achieve their targets through cross-sector collaboration. This type of coordinated effort and partnerships combining resources from diverse actors can be leveraged to address all global health challenges, generating more lasting and meaningful impact. At this dinner, a panel discussion will demonstrate how partnerships among governments, civil society organizations, and the private sector can provide solutions with depth and economies of scale that sustainably impact global health.

Bridging the Opportunity Divide for 300 Million Youth

Dinner hosted by Microsoft


While economies around the world are showing signs of recovery, recent data indicates that lasting effects from the global economic crisis are continuing to create challenges for youth. This includes a persistent “opportunity divide,” a gap between those who have the skills, training, and access to opportunities to achieve success and those who do not. Microsoft YouthSpark—the company’s Commitment to Action—focuses on closing this gap for 300 million young people by 2015 by partnering closely with youth, government, nonprofit and business leaders. Despite tough economic circumstances, a number of programs are successfully helping young people gain skills and training, secure employment, and create businesses. This dinner will feature an interactive conversation with youth who are benefiting from these programs, and will discuss the actions we can collectively take to continue the progress made in bridging the “opportunity divide” for youth.

Combatting Wildlife Crime: Saving the Rhino from Extinction

Dinner hosted by United Postcode Lotteries


The United Postcode Lotteries—together with the Peace Parks Foundation and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Netherlands—commit at this year’s CGI Annual Meeting to tackle rhino population decline using a multi-pronged, systems-based approach implemented through the new and innovative African Rhino Protection Programme. This approach includes fighting rhino poaching criminal syndicates head on, as well as providing habitat and species protection support to southern African countries and their conservation agencies. A panel of experts and advocates will share their experiences protecting the animals, both on the ground and globally, in the fight against highly-organized wildlife crime syndicates.

Feeding 9 Billion, Together: Sustainable Food Production in a Changing Climate

Dinner hosted by Monsanto


Over the next 50 years, societies around the world will have to generate more food than they did in the past 10,000 years combined in order to meet the needs of the growing global population. And this food will need to be produced in ever-evolving environments that are facing some serious challenges, from extreme weather to the availability and sustainability of natural resources. No single entity can solve these issues alone, and it is imperative for farmers, corporations, NGOs, and government agencies to work together to develop creative solutions. This dinner will feature a compelling panel discussion exploring ways to improve sustainable food production in the face of climate change, population growth, and resource constraints.

Our Generation’s Greatest Challenge: Winning the Race to a Clean Energy Future

Dinner hosted by NRG


By inspiring consumers to be passionate about how we use and produce energy, we can spur a consumer-led movement that compels a clean energy future. Through collaboration and solutions driven by a shared purpose, we can create positive environmental and economic outcomes unprecedented in scale and ambition—securing the futures of people, the economy, and the planet. Challenged to shift our mindsets toward achieving this goal through creative cooperation at last year’s Annual Meeting, this dinner will bring together corporate leaders to accelerate the race to a clean energy future and fight our generation’s greatest challenge: climate change.

Starting From Zero: The Unrivaled Importance of Early Childhood

Dinner hosted by Blue Cross and Blue Shield of North Carolina


At no other time do humans develop as rapidly as they do from birth through age five. During this time, a critical foundation is established, profoundly impacting an individual’s entire life. For young children to thrive, they need loving caregivers, supportive communities, holistic education, and healthy environments to promote lifelong positive development. This dinner will feature an expert-led discussion examining the inexorable link between a child’s earliest experiences and his or her future outcomes—highlighting the responsibility we share in supporting the success of generations to come.

Reimagining Finance for Social Impact: Planning for Scale

Tracking the efficiency and effectiveness of international development funding can prove challenging—while the focus has traditionally been placed on the impacts resulting from vital programs, assessing the broader systems that make these programs possible is of equal importance. Today, research indicates that getting funds securely and quickly across borders and to hard-to-reach places is a burden experienced up to 80 percent more by NGOs than by comparable for-profit multinationals, inadvertently constraining social impact. What would it take to co-create the more robust systems needed by the global community to solve the worlds’ most pressing challenges? At this interactive breakfast, CGI members will imagine new approaches to finance that promote transparency, collaboration, security, and the development of new technologies to address complex global and financial issues. The resulting feedback will be shared with the broader CGI community and used to plan the scaling up of Western Union’s existing Commitments to Action made through CGI.

Girls & Women Strategy Session

Since 2009, the progress CGI has made in supporting the empowerment of girls and women (G&W) around the world is a result of the dedicated work of the CGI community overall. Over the past several years, girls and women have been strategically integrated into CGI’s programming and various platforms, leading to an increase in CGI member Commitments to Action that take this perspective and issue into account in their design and implementation. This strategy session provides an opportunity for members to network with industry leaders and special guests, and take in the panel conversation “5 Years On: Engaging Men as Allies to Promote Women’s Empowerment.” Members are then invited to participate in a town hall discussion on issues related to girls’ and women’s empowerment through CGI commitments.
