Program update: this event has transitioned from an in-person presentation to a webinar.

Can the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) inform your specific CSR & ESG programming?

The 17 SDGs are the world's best plan to build a better world for people and our planet by 2030. These goals recognize that ending poverty must go hand-in-hand with strategies that build economic growth and address a range of social needs including education, health, equality and job opportunities, while tackling climate change and working to preserve our ocean and forests.

During the webinar, we will hear from Irena Zubcevic who in her role provides substantive support and capacity-building for the SDGs and their related thematic issues.

Presenter Irena Zubcevic, Chief of the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA)

With nearly 30 years of industry experience to her credit, Ms. Zubcevic has worked as the chief of the Intergovernmental Policy and Review Branch, Office of Intergovernmental Support and Coordination for Sustainable Development since April 2018 at the United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
