Working directly with the CEO, the Executive Office drives the strategic vision of the organization, ensuring adherence to the mission. The department leads both the day-to-day and longer-term operations, including HR, finances, data management and security, and logistics, in addition to overseeing Concordia’s Leadership Council, Advisors, and Senior Advisors.
With oversight of the entire Concordia community, the Partnerships Department manages the organization’s Programming Partners, Programming Sponsors, and Individual and Patron Members. Working closely with these individuals and organizations on a regular basis, the department curates topical content aimed at amplifying important initiatives, identifies opportunities for partnership, supports early stage partnership design and implementation, and ultimately deepens collaboration across sectors, industries, and geographies.
The Programming Department produces powerful convenings that elevate voices and perspectives from across all sectors and levels to advance critical conversations around globally-impacting issues. From the Annual and Regional Summits to smaller year-round member events, the department oversees all aspects of Concordia’s events, from confirming speakers and creating sessions to running the logistics.
The Communications Department is responsible for strategizing, shaping, and implementing all aspects of communications. Establishing Concordia’s “voice,” the Communications Department produces all external-facing materials—including the website, reports, marketing materials, and email campaigns—as well as overseeing branding and design, press and media, and social media.
