U.S. Chamber’s BCLC Reports on How Global Partnerships are Changing and Improving
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Business Civic Leadership Center (BCLC) released a new report: Making the Connection: How Partnerships Contribute to Global Development. The report features best practices in business and lessons learned in global public-private partnerships (PPP).
“Public-private partnerships are really starting to mature as a strategy for addressing difficult humanitarian and development challenges,” said Stephen Jordan, senior vice president and executive director of the U.S. Chamber’s Business Civic Leadership Center. “Making the Connection shares how businesses and their partners are developing new ways to work together, and provides insight about why this approach is likely to continue to grow as a way to lift people out of poverty and improve their quality of life.”
Making the Connection features 12 leading companies including Abbott, Chevron Corporation, The Dow Chemical Company, KPMG, and Microsoft Corporation. A new, short, behind-the-scenes video about the report is now available and includes an interview with Microsoft’s Akhtar Badshah as well as perspectives from BCLC’s Stephen Jordan and Taryn Bird. The report also features a chapter discussing the role of partnerships in humanitarian crises, including a timely article about the power of public-private partnerships in Haiti.
