On the occasion of the 75th Anniversary of the United Nations and as the UN Global Compact marks 20 years of uniting business for a better world, it is with immense pleasure that we invite you to join us from 21 to 23 September 2020 for Uniting Business LIVE at Global Impact Forum.
Over a series of three forums, leading Chief Executives, corporate sustainability experts and business leaders will come together to take stock of the state of the world, address gaps in progress, drive business ambition on the SDGs and highlight cooperative and actional solutions that are ready — today. These themes will run throughout multi-stakeholder panels, live General Assembly presentations and CEO interventions, and will encourage a global cross-sector dialogue through programme-themed meet-ups, interactive breakout-sessions and exposition booths.
On Tuesday 22 September, the Global Impact Forum will showcase our four key impact initiatives: SDG Ambition, Target Gender Equality, Young SDG Innovators, and Climate Ambition for a 1.5 Degree Future. This special online event will virtually (and sustainably!) convene leaders from business, government, civil society and the United Nations to showcase and inspire support for the UN’s mission.
As you are aware that Target Gender Equality is launched at a critical point in time. COVID-19 has unveiled and exacerbated inequalities and is threatening progress that has been made towards the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. To build back better, the adoption of inclusive business models that embed gender equality into business strategy and operations is more important than ever. Recognizing these imperatives, GCNI will host the Spotlight Session on the theme ‘Target Gender Equality in India & Way forward’ on 22nd September 2020 from 16:00 - 16:25 PM IST at the Target Gender Equality Lounge of Global Impact Forum.

- Ashwin Yardi, CEO – India and Chief Industrialization & Automation Officer, Capgemini
- Gagandeep K. Bhullar – Founder & CEO, SuperHumanRace
Timings for Spotlight Session: 4:00 - 4:25 PM IST
