WASHINGTON, D.C., December 2, 2016 /3BL Media/ – Understanding the solvable problems within the world’s most pressing challenges is the first step to creating systems change. The Conference Board’s Strategic Community Impact Fall Symposium, titled Our World: What are Companies doing to Address the Big Issues, takes a big picture approach to understanding how the private sector is impacting the Sustainable Development Goals. The Sustainable Development Goals, also known as the Global Goals, were ratified last year by the United Nations and outline 17 goals for sustainable development.

Amanda MacArthur, Chief Programs Officer of PYXERA Global, will moderate the panel discussion, Addressing the World’s Most Serious Needs at the symposium that takes place today and tomorrow in New York.

Alongside Ms. MacArthur on the panel will be Joy Marini, Executive Director, Global Community Impact, Johnson & Johnson and Amanda Bowman, Business Development & Partnerships Director, Emerging World. The three will discuss models, best practices, and challenges in addressing the Global Goals. Each panelist will share insights into their partnership successes and a glimpse at what lies ahead.
