2017 CONCORDIA ANNUAL SUMMIT: Americares

Concordia se asoció con Americares en el 2017 Concordia Annual Summit para realizar un Day of Engagement especial e inclusivo para la comunidad del Summit. Americares es una organización de ayuda y desarrollo centrada en la salud que atiende a las personas afectadas por la pobreza o el desastre con medicamentos, suministros médicos y programas de salud que cambian vidas. Durante casi 40 años, la organización ha respondido rápidamente a las necesidades de los socios locales y sus comunidades en más de 90 países de todo el mundo. Durante el curso del Summit de dos días, los asistentes del Summit crearon 1,000 botiquines de primeros auxilios para que Americares pudiera repartirlos en sus esfuerzos de responder a los huracanes. Inmediatamente después del Summit, los kits fueron enviados a Houston para su distribución a las víctimas.

2017 CONCORDIA annual SUMMIT: Fortune Society

Focused on the issue of criminal justice reform, this Day of Engagement took place at the Fortune Society, a non-profit social service and advocacy organization whose mission is to promote alternatives to incarceration, and support individuals as they reenter society. Finding gainful employment is one of the chief obstacles faced by the formerly incarcerated. The Fortune Society provides employment services to equip this community with the skills necessary to obtain employment and thrive in the workplace. Through Job Readiness workshops, participants are taught how to network, excel in interviews, answer difficult conviction questions, and create a resume and cover letter. Concordia Members conducted a mock Job Readiness workshop with Fortune Society clients and learned about an impactful partnership with Bloomberg LP.

CONCORDIA Europe SUMMIT in athens

Concordia Members enjoyed two engagement opportunities during the Concordia Europe Summit in Athens. Each one touched on issues related to the refugee crisis, economic opportunity, and youth engagement. The first was a guided tour of Athen’s Partnership, a non-profit organization that supports poverty alleviation, improved health, access to education, and community development in the City of Athens by leveraging the resources and know-how of both the public and private sectors. Members then visited a facility operated by HOME Project to meet a group of unaccompanied refugee children from Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan residing in Greece. After hearing their stories of escape and recovery, the entire group prepared and shared a meal together.  Both HOME Project and the Athens Partnership demonstrated innovative collaborations that engage local governments, non-profits, and the private sector to address systemic challenges facing at-risk communities. 

Concordia americas summit in bogoTá

 

The day following the Summit, participants had the opportunity to see firsthand how art, culture, and the environment are all interwoven into the Colombian peace process, connecting real partnerships back to the Summit conversations from the day earlier. Tackling issues related to peace and stability, conservation, and youth engagement, Conservation International Colombia has partnered with local communities and nonprofits to restore the once violence-prone and environmentally degraded Chingaza-Sumapaz-Guerrero corridor to its original natural beauty. CI Colombia believes that investing in the country’s biodiversity connects inhabitants to their country, with positive outcomes for the peace process. Participants had the opportunity to learn about partnerships to improve market access for small shareholder farmers, walk along the Las Delicias ravine, and enjoy a presentation on coffee sustainability by Koffie Tapp.
