Against the backdrop of an increasingly partisan world, Concordia believes in the power of cross-sector partnerships to create a collaborative and inclusive global community. In 2017, we expanded both our domestic and international presence, convening a total of 4,500 individuals from across all sectors, industries, and demographics, while significantly growing our membership community. Looking ahead, we are determined to bring new and unique voices to the table, while doubling down on our ongoing work to build long-term partnership models that transform conversations into action.
With this in mind, we are delighted to announce the publication of our 2017 Annual Report. In addition to details of the events that marked a year of transformative growth for Concordia, from our inaugural International Summit in Bogota, Colombia to our seventh Annual Summit—the largest and most inclusive nonpartisan forum alongside the UN General Assembly—the report features:
- Partnership Spotlight: From brokering relationships to elevating partnership success stories, Concordia played an active role in a number of integral cross-sector partnerships throughout 2017. Our Partnership Spotlight showcases key examples of different types of partnership.
- Concordia Membership Community: Our membership community grew exponentially in 2017, with a wealth of opportunity for Members utilizing Concordia’s year-round concierge services and private roundtables.
- Partnership Development Department: Alongside our international and domestic convenings, a milestone for Concordia was the formation of our Department of Partnership Development, a team dedicated to leveraging the conversations and connections that result from Concordia’s convenings into potential future partnerships. Our Annual Report explains the new department, and what makes up a Concordia Partnership.
