About Global Partnerships Week 2016:

From March 7-13, 2016, The Secretary’s Office of Global Partnerships at the U.S. Department of State, the U.S. Global Development Lab at the U.S. Agency for International Development, Concordia, and PeaceTech Lab, will organize its annual Global Partnerships Week (GPW) celebration, under the theme “Leveraging Innovation in Partnerships” in recognition of the critical role public-private partnerships play in promoting diplomacy and development worldwide. During one week each March, GPW inspires public and private organizations everywhere
through self-organized local, national and global activities designed to help them explore their potential as shared value collaborators. 
GPW will launch by convening the second annual gathering of partnership builders from all sectors for a one-day conference at the U.S. Institute of Peace on March 7. This event will bring together partnership practitioners and leaders to engage in discussion on common challenges and best practices, identify new partnership opportunities, and coordinate on collaborative solutions.


Tech-ify Your Partnerships: When, How, and Why to Use Technology

They say necessity is the mother of invention. How has the changing tech landscape engaged in partnerships to prevent or mitigate violent conflict? And how can tech be thought of as an integral part of a partnership rather than an afterthought? This panel will convene experts from the public and private sector around how technology has been involved in projects overseas, both successfully and unsuccessfully.

Nancy Payne, Vice President, PeaceTech Lab, U.S. Institute of Peace

SPEAKERS:
Matt McNabb, Co-Founder and CEO, First Mile Geo
