Geneva, 14 September: Education is central to improving the lives of people globally. The 2030 development agenda recognizes that education is essential for the success of sustainable development as a whole with Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 4, which focuses specifically on education.
To address the need to further understanding and approach of sustainability as inherent to business practices, WBCSD offers two educational programs, designed to help business leaders navigate complex topics and concepts that will determine the future, enabling individuals and organizations to lead, transform and succeed:
WBCSD Leadership Program
100% of participants recommend the Leadership Program, which will celebrate its 20th anniversary in 2021.
It helps representatives from companies gain an in-depth understanding of sustainable development challenges and the opportunities that feed into strategic business decision-making. As the world continues to change, sustainable businesses will grow to be the most successful. Therefore, it’s critical for the next generation of leaders to understand the importance of sustainability and integrate related challenges and opportunities into their core business strategy.
To nominate your rising stars who are up for the challenge of this intense, demanding and rewarding Leadership Program - please send your nomination(s) for the class of 2021 to Suzanne Feinmann by 23 November 2020.
Many studies show a correlation between companies with a greater proportion of women in senior decision-making positions and the delivery of better economic results for that company, as well as a greater focus on social and environmental issues.
Now is the time for business to commit to SDG 5, which aims to achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls by 2030. Through its new LEAP project, WBCSD is aiming to accelerate this transition.
To engage in our ambitious and rewarding LEAP Program, please send your nominations to Gabriela Uriarte by 31 January 2021.
