GDP and financial profits have not been able to sufficiently assess and drive the long-term prosperity of businesses and societies around the world, yet they remain the standard for measuring progress. Governments, civil society, and businesses need to redefine value to address not just the economic but the social and environmental challenges of the 21st century. In this session, key leaders across sectors will reimagine how CGI members can:

• identify which indicators and measurement systems can be implemented to drive progress for the public, private, and non-profit sectors
• assess and internalize externalities and non-quantifiable outcomes to provide a broader picture of impact
• utilize big data to capture, analyze, and drive results in both real time and over the long term

CGI Conversation hosted by CNBC's Becky Quick

Do Consumers Care?

SESSION FEATURES:  FILMED FOR BROADCAST  •  PANEL

The global economic crisis that took hold six years ago and the subsequent recession raised new hopes, expectations, and fears about the relationship between corporations and consumers. While more than 50 percent of consumers worldwide say that they are willing to reward companies that give back to society, they often still pick the easy and affordable options that provide short-term gratification and convenience. Corporations are exploring how to produce meaningfully sustainable products and services that are better for consumer health, fairer to those who produce them, and cleaner for our planet, while also helping consumers navigate an abundance of choices. As the relationship between business and consumers continues to reset after the economic crisis, CEOs in this panel discussion will:

• identify the role consumers expect corporations and their leaders to play in moving society and economic opportunity, as well as innovation, forward
• explore the value of socially-responsible corporate efforts to investors and which social benefits all stakeholders expect corporations to provide
• determine ways for CGI members to promote transparency and understanding between business and society, enabling consumers to make educated purchasing decisions that are in their long-term interests

Delivering Low-Cost Degrees to 40-million People

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

There is an increasing need to expand the talent pool around the world to meet the professional challenges of the 21st century. However, access to and the affordability of higher education continue to widen the gap between those seeking to become career-ready and the employers seeking skilled talent to fill current and future workforce demands. Massive open online courses (MOOCs) have enormous potential to provide access to high-quality coursework to tens of millions of students around the world, and offer an untraditional pathway to attaining employable skills critical to diminishing the existing skills gap.

In this session, CGI members will learn strategies for harnessing this innovative learning model—with the support of third-party accreditation—to build a highly-skilled global workforce.

Market Mechanisms as Tools in the Fight Against Human Trafficking

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  COMMITMENT DEVELOPMENT  •  INTERACTIVE

Increasingly, anti-slavery advocates are employing market-based industry incentives such as investment, capacity building, and market access to companies in high-slavery-risk industries willing to transform their practices. The end goal is a better product made by happier—and safer—workers.

This session will garner lessons from several Commitments to Action made by CGI members that utilize this approach, in industries ranging from agriculture to household goods. Members will discuss successful market interventions, examine strategies for replicating and scaling innovative initiatives, and identify potential new partnerships in this space.

Mobile Partnerships for Financial Inclusion

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  COMMITMENT DEVELOPMENT  •  INTERACTIVE

One person out of every three in the world lacks access to the most basic financial services provided by banks and insurance companies. Serving this population—namely those living at the bottom of the pyramid—through micro-lending, micro-savings, and micro-insurance initiatives has proven successful in achieving pathways to economic stability and more sustained prosperity. Mobile technology in particular has given rise to new and innovative ways to deliver those services to the people who need them most, yet this population remains largely untapped.

In this session, CGI members will discuss why large, established financial service providers across the globe often struggle to work with consumers at the bottom of the pyramid, and how the development of new partnerships with organization more adept at operating in the sector—from NGOs to telecommunications companies—can lead to greater empowerment, stability, and economic gains for all.

Proving the Interdependence of Conservation, Profitability, and Economic Growth

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  COMMITMENT DEVELOPMENT  •  INTERACTIVE

CGI members—from key business leaders to local NGOs—have made significant strides in developing operational and financial frameworks and tools for conserving, restoring, and using nature sustainably. Developed as core business priorities, as part of economic development plans, or as conservation-focused initiatives, these cross-sector efforts recognize the value of linking the economy and nature to ensure the long-term viability of the world’s ecosystems.

This session will highlight specific examples that illustrate this relationship across industries, issues, and geographies. CGI members will identify potential pathways to hasten the adoption of tools that prioritize both economic and environmental value. Advances in wild sourcing, ecosystem services valuation, human and environmental health, response and resiliency, ocean and terrestrial conservation, and the role of women in promoting environmental stewardship will be examined.

The Business Case for Preparedness

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  COMMITMENT DEVELOPMENT  •  INTERACTIVE

Since 1970, the number of people exposed to large-scale floods and tropical cyclones has doubled. In addition to the humanitarian toll, the cost of international humanitarian aid rose 430 percent between 2004 and 2013. The economic implications of natural disasters extend to businesses, driving up internal expenditures and creating challenges for their customers. Typically, large-scale disasters prompt spontaneous participation of the private sector in emergency response—but business can play a much larger role in helping to enhance an at-risk country’s preparedness before a disaster strikes. A region that is increasingly attracting investors and business operations, Southeast Asia, also has a history of vulnerability to natural disasters, including the 2004 Indian Ocean Tsunami, and most recently, Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in November 2013.

In this session, CGI members will draw on lessons learned in the aftermath of the typhoon as well as other past disasters, and explore strategies that leverage the business community’s capacities for continuity and resiliency planning aimed at reducing vulnerability while increasing their competitive advantage.

Women’s Sexual and Reproductive Health Strategies

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

Protecting women’s sexual and reproductive health is paramount to truly empowering women, and is essential to poverty alleviation. However, various challenges to maternal and neonatal health remain, and are further compounded by vague support systems. For example, fistula, a condition resulting from prolonged obstructed labor or sexual violence, often leads to the marginalization of women by their societies, stigmatizing them and sentencing them to a life of dependency. Despite being a preventable and treatable condition, approximately 2 to 4 million women in Africa, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East remain untreated.

This session will bring together CGI members who are employing holistic solutions to address maternal health challenges—from tackling structural systems that increase the prevalence of child marriage or access to human papillomavirus (HPV) vaccinations, to empowering those living with fistula to regain their health and financial independence. Members will explore new opportunities for creative collaboration to protect the sexual and reproductive health and rights of all women.

Lunch will be served at 12:30 PM

Today, half of the world’s population lives in cities—and by 2030, there will be five billion urban dwellers. With an estimated five million migrants moving to cities each month, the rapid pace of urbanization globally has left many with limited access to essential services, most notably affecting the one billion people living in slums. Despite this, urban dwellers have built a $10 trillion informal economy. They have used their cities as laboratories of innovation and entrepreneurship, and have worked to create solutions that bridge gaps in the provision of financial services, health care, and transportation. In this session, key leaders across sectors will reimagine how CGI members can:

• identify tools that can be used to unlock the inherent innovation occurring in cities, helping residents drive business and economic growth
• build networks of collaboration to scale up and replicate solutions at the national and global levels

How can 2.5 billion people living without toilets gain access to sanitation?

SESSION FEATURES:  DESIGNING IDEAS  •  INTERACTIVE  •  GROUP DISCUSSION

Lack of sanitation diminishes people’s overall health, education, and safety—it results in an estimated $260 billion worth of lost productivity, increases healthcare costs, and leads to premature death. Notably, poor sanitation and hygiene result in diarrheal diseases which kills 1.8 million people annually, 90 percent of which are children under five years of age. Further, poor sanitation disproportionately impacts women—for example, more than 50 percent of girls worldwide attend schools without sanitation systems leading to increased absenteeism during menstruation. In this session, CGI members will reimagine how to:

• support NGOs and private enterprises in building sanitation infrastructure for both urban and rural environments
• assist entrepreneurs in providing sanitation solutions to their local communities
• design sanitation services to keep girls safe and in school

Globally, nearly 75 million or 13 percent of young people are unemployed. In the Middle East and North Africa region, this number rises to more than 28 percent. The issue is compounded when factoring in the over 127 million adults worldwide who are also unemployed. Meanwhile, 40 percent of employers in the United States, 65 percent of Brazilian employers, and 64 percent of Indian employers report they are unable to fill job vacancies, potentially causing billions of dollars in losses. Connecting youth and adults to a value chain stretching from education to job opportunities is essential for achieving long-term economic growth and unlocking the human talent that drives the prosperity of businesses. In this session, key leaders across sectors will reimagine how CGI members can:

• collaborate across sectors—specifically companies, government, education, and training providers—to create real education-to-employment journeys for young people, as well as skills conversion for adults
• eliminate the barriers that keep those traditionally left behind from gaining meaningful employment opportunities

Does Business Back Education? The Role of the Private Sector in Supporting Education

Dinner hosted by The Varkey GEMS Foundation

SESSION FEATURES:  OFF-SITE LOCATION  •  PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Globally, more than 58 million children are out of school, millions more are in education but not learning, and huge disparities remain between what many children do learn and the skills they need to succeed in life and work. By failing to nurture the talent of young people, poor education systems are holding back economic expansion and productivity. A third of CEOs globally are concerned that this skills shortage will negatively impact their companies’ ability to innovate. Inequalities in educational opportunity also weaken the social and political stability needed for businesses to thrive. Business Backs Education is a global advocacy campaign that encourages businesses to more proactively increase their investment in educational initiatives in areas of greatest need.Launched at the Global Education & Skills Forum 2014 by the Varkey GEMS Foundation—with partners UNESCO and the Coalition for Business Engagement–the program’s primary goal is for businesses to commit at least 20 percent of corporate social responsibility, social impact, or sustainability budget toward educational initiatives by 2020. They are encouraged to achieve this by actively engaging with and supporting the public sector in supporting education outcomes.

How Higher Education Can Ensure That All Students Are College and Career Ready

Dinner hosted by The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

SESSION FEATURES:  OFF-SITE LOCATION  •  PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Nearly 9 out of 10 community college leaders say students arrive unprepared for college-level work, and more than a third of four-year college leaders say the same. Today, more and more higher education leaders are stepping up with solutions to tackle the problem, including promoting the Common Core State Standards which outline the learning goals that each student should have attained by the end of each grade. In fact, no one is better positioned than higher education to help Americans understand that rigorous standards like these are necessary for students to succeed in high school, through college, and into their careers. At this dinner, a panel of thought leaders and practitioners will explore higher educations’ responsibility to partner with K-12 and early learning, define its role over the education cycle, and highlight best practices from cooperative efforts already underway.

Partnerships to Scale Sustainability Engagement for the Environment and the Economy

SESSION FEATURES:  OFF-SITE LOCATION  •  PRE-REGISTRATION REQUIRED

Residential energy use has significant repercussions on environment and economic situations locally and globally—for example, today in the United States, $241 billion is spent annually on residential home energy. Between 1999 and 2010, home energy consumption increased by 32 percent, driving up costs dramatically. Simultaneously, private sector wages dropped 7.5 percent between 2008 and 2010. Home energy savings can lower costs by hundreds of dollars while reducing carbon emissions and protecting the environment. As a result, local governments and the private sector are finding new and innovative ways to help individuals and families adapt energy efficient retrofits to their homes. This dinner will share best practices in emerging models that use employee energy benefits to further sustainability engagement, and will identify partnerships that can help these models scale in the U.S. and globally.

When women participate in the economy and politics, the positive effects ripple across entire societies. Imagine a world where women make up half of CEOs, executives, government officials, and landowners, and whose salaries equal men’s. What if this world also ensured that girls and women were as educated and as healthy as men, and were free from violence, trafficking, and abuse? While tremendous progress has been made over the last 20 years in achieving equality for girls and women around the world, the pace of change needs to be significantly accelerated. For example, with current projections, women will not comprise half of the world’s elected representatives until 2065 or half the world’s leaders until 2134. In this session, key leaders across sectors will reimagine how CGI members can:

• examine the progress that has been made since the 1995 Fourth World Conference on Women in Beijing, and what challenges remain
• build the foundation for women’s equality and societies’ prosperity through increased access to finance and land, while addressing socio-cultural norms
• utilize transformative levers, such as social media and data, to accelerate progress

Taking Charge of Girls’ Education

SESSION FEATURES:  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

The number of children attending primary school has significantly increased in the past two decades, and the gap between boys’ and girls’ attendance has narrowed in many countries. However, there are still far fewer girls than boys in secondary school in many regions, and girls face additional barriers to completing secondary school with the skills they need to succeed—including threats to their safety and inadequate quality and learning opportunities. A new consortium commitment aims to address these “second generation” issues, particularly in some of the most difficult to reach and marginalized communities across the globe. The consortium will: ensure that girls can attend and complete primary and secondary school; make schools safer and more secure; improve the quality of learning for girls; support the transition to higher education and employment; and cultivate local country leaders to champion this work at the grassroots level.

This session will build off the momentum of this collaborative effort by more than 20 companies, civil society, multilateral organizations, and governments. CGI members are encouraged to join in the discussion to learn more about the consortium and to explore partnership opportunities across the CGI community to improve learning and leadership opportunities for young women around the world.

SESSION FEATURES:  DEBATES  •  INTERACTIVE  •  GROUP DISCUSSION

Since the formation of the Haiti Action Network in 2008, CGI members have galvanized more than $500 million for Commitments to Action when fully funded and implemented. As Haiti continues to recover from the devastating 2010 earthquake, foreign aid is waning while local and international businesses are increasing investments, supported by the government of Haiti. This session will highlight the work of the Haiti Action Network and debate the following questions:

• Can CGI members continue designing and implementing Commitments to Action that build local capacity and have clear exit strategies to enable Haiti to prosper far into the future?
• Can direct investments supporting Haitian entrepreneurship and business growth replace philanthropy?
• Can the critical lessons learned from Haiti be applied to similar settings that have been impacted by natural disaster, conflict, and poverty?

go back 25-30 years ago I used to read haitian papers and in one of them there was a physician /pathologist who wrote this article about divestment of the regime in healthcare to the point that general hospital had 80% of physicians leaving (in spite of being trained on the public dime) the piece was about someone at th etop of the regime who had an acute heart attack and then had no care because the health system had bene dismantled and I think that is just a reminder of something I saw again in liberia last week that without strong public sector investment in health care and education you cant grow the strong companies that we would need to build economy of eg in haiti -and that was rendered very clear to the haiti action network in 2010, the healthcare network destroyed  couldnt respond to the injuries caused by the earthquake, so to put this in your terms : even with substanatial private sector growth their needs to public in vestment in healthcare and education -

this is also an argument for strong and increasing tax based investment

50.54 rwanda heatlh care system and medical education (compares favorably even to china in terms of budget that goes to healtcare that is publicly funded over 5% of gdp - laggard would be india and all west africa country with ebola)

5200 happy story university hospital of mirebalais- there's no univrsrity here - we said yet! that infrastructure built for public sector by private sector i ns the magnet for bringing back medical experts who had left haiti - pulling people back to invest their haitaia talnens requires public investment -- and I also invite all univertities to join us in building mierabellais-

Coding for Opportunity: Engaging Underrepresented Groups in Computer Science

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  COMMITMENT DEVELOPMENT  •  INTERACTIVE

Computer science (CS) is a key driver of technological innovation, bolstering economic competitiveness and job creation across industries and sectors. Expanding and strengthening CS learning opportunities along the educational pipeline is a business imperative, required to build a highly qualified workforce for the future. Foundational digital literacy is also essential for individuals to achieve full participation in the 21st century. Despite this, wide disparities exist in access to and engagement in CS education opportunities, namely for women and other underserved communities who are largely underrepresented in the field.

In this session, CGI members will learn about current research on inequality in CS education—including innovative approaches that companies, NGOs, and advocacy groups are taking to lower barriers to entry and broaden participation. Members will examine strategies for scaling and replicating these successes around the world through collaborative action.

Investing in/Connecting Impact Entrepreneurs

SESSION FEATURES:  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

As an increasing number of organizations are working to identify and cultivate entrepreneurs across the world, incubators and accelerators are being used as aggregation points for technical assistance, competitions, market linkages, and possible impact investments. This session will explore how CGI members are successfully helping to grow regional entrepreneurial ecosystems where risk-taking is encouraged, failure is accepted, and beta efforts are supported and scaled. How can we better connect impact entrepreneurs with earlier-stage investors to help them reach proof of concept and become investment-ready for larger investors or markets?

Myanmar Action Network

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  COMMITMENT DEVELOPMENT  •  INTERACTIVE

Myanmar—a nation of 60 million people and one of the most exciting frontier markets in the world—has seen a dramatic increase in investment and activity resulting from an ambitious economic growth agenda. Opportunities abound to address critical social, economic, and environmental challenges while fueling growth. As the future of this emerging economy unfolds, inclusive efforts to design and invest in solutions that support enterprise development, expand educational opportunity, build the agricultural sector, enhance public health, improve critical infrastructure, and ensure financial inclusion will be essential.

This session will serve as an opportunity for CGI members representing corporations, nongovernmental organizations, and social enterprises to explore strategies for responsible and inclusive investment in the social and economic development of the country.

Can impact investing prioritize profit, people, and the planet?

http://new.livestream.com/CGI/CGI2014/videos/63009704

SESSION FEATURES:  DEBATES  •  INTERACTIVE  •  GROUP DISCUSSION

The impact investment market is currently estimated to hold around $40 billion in capital, and projections suggest that by 2020, the sector could reach $400 billion to $1 trillion. As new vehicles—such as development impact bonds and retail bonds—hold great promise for future scale, gaps remain. Notably, in the wake of unprecedented climate change disruptions and escalating global resource constraints, environmental value has failed to be addressed equally alongside social and financial gains. In this session, CGI members will debate the following questions:

• Can impact investing preserve its original intent to create social and environmental returns, while accounting for scale and financial gains?
• Can the field of environmental impact investing grow by addressing the challenges and opportunities of measurement and long-term sustainability?
• Can bonds bridge the gap between financial gains and environmental and social returns for all stakeholders?

CGI Conversation hosted by CNN's Sanjay Gupta

The Science of Success: Investing in Babies’ Minds

SESSION FEATURES:  FILMED FOR BROADCAST  •  PANEL

A baby’s mind develops into an incredible intelligence machine—from zero to five years old, 700 new neural connections are formed every second. In this critical stage of life, parents and caregivers play a huge part in building their babies’ brains, fostering the abilities that will help them succeed in learning and working. Investing in early childhood development garners phenomenal returns—improving the future health, education, and income of children and creating higher-skilled workers whose increased level of productivity benefits their local economies and society as a whole. This conversation will guide CGI members in reimagining how to:

• equip parents across the world with the tools necessary for providing their children with the best early start in life
• identify proven early childhood interventions that reduce income inequality for individuals, increase economic opportunities for countries, and grow profits for businesses

How can communities prevent and resolve the double burden of malnutrition?

SESSION FEATURES:  DESIGNING IDEAS  •  INTERACTIVE  •  GROUP DISCUSSION

Today, 925 million people globally suffer from hunger and undernutrition, the greatest risk factors leading to disease, mostly in low- and middle-income countries. Simultaneously, developing countries are grappling with the onset of obesity, driven by the overconsumption of unhealthy calories. Mexico, for example, has surpassed the United States as the most obese country in the world, and China has transitioned from famine to obesity within one generation. The long-term and irreversible consequences of nutrition deficiency and obesity—including diabetes, heart disease, and other non-communicable diseases—affect 10 percent of adults and 30 million children worldwide. In this session, CGI members will reimagine how to:

• support countries and communities in avoiding the shift from food scarcity to nutrition deficiency and overconsumption
• increase food availability and optimal nutrition among the malnourished, whether they are undernourished or obese
• promote better behaviors that result in healthier food choices and consumption

Expanding Energy Access in Africa

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

Access to energy is a pressing challenge for the continent of Africa, where roughly 600 million people live without electricity. Partnerships aimed at deploying clean energy solutions and promoting universal electrification in Africa can help to bridge the gap in reliable access to energy.

This session will consider how to increase private investment in sustainable energy in Africa, as well as how social entrepreneurs can innovate low-cost energy solutions for impoverished and off-grid communities.

Resilient Cities Action Network

SESSION FEATURES:  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

Rising sea levels, droughts, and increased frequency of storms are just some of the effects of climate change that cities must now address when constructing and maintaining built structures. The Resilient Cities Action Network addresses the topic of resilient cities through five interrelated angles: 1) design, 2) investment, 3) risk management, 4) social fabric, and 5) technology.

This session will allow CGI members to assess the progress made on this topic since last years’ Annual Meeting and define future priorities. Business leaders and key government officials will work together identify cross-sector opportunities for action and collaboration.

Responding to Ebola: Report from West Africa

SESSION FEATURES:  COLLECTIVE STRATEGIES  •  NETWORKING  •  INTERACTIVE

The current Ebola outbreak in West Africa is a defining global health challenge of our time. As death tolls mount, and the virus continues to spread to additional countries, tens of thousands of people are likely to be infected. The outbreak has put an enormous strain on already-vulnerable health systems in countries like Liberia, and many more lives are at risk as health centers close, health care workers perish, and people lose access to basic health services. An urgent, well coordinated, extensive response is required to contain the outbreak, prevent further infections, avoid preventable deaths from causes other than Ebola, protect the health care workers caring for the sick, and strengthen public health systems to prevent future outbreaks.

In this session, CGI members will discuss current efforts underway and explore ways to leverage partnerships in response to the outbreak. How can resources be mobilized to deliver the staff, health commodities, and systems to stop the spread of Ebola?

MODERATOR:

CLOSING PLENARY SESSION

3:30 PM -

 4:45 PM

Since 2005, CGI members have challenged the status quo by proposing bold and cutting-edge ideas, some never envisioned before, that led to disruptive breakthroughs. Going forward, how can CGI members continue to take worthwhile risks and accept that experiencing failure is a critical element to achieving success? How can they “dream big” in order to unlock innovation and drive social change?

This session will share the perspectives of forward-thinking leaders and innovators from across sectors, including a live conversation with the International Space Station on exploring new frontiers.
