Clinton Global Initiative 2023

In-Person event


September 18-19, 2023

Everest Group’s Eric Simonson, Managing Partner, and Rita N. Soni, Principal Analyst for Impact Sourcing and Sustainability, will attend the Clinton Global Initiative 2023 meeting on September 18-19 in New York City. This year’s focus is what it takes to keep going.

Last year, Everest Group pledged to dramatically increase the impact sourcing workforce – connecting hundreds of thousands of marginalized individuals to new jobs – by providing research and enablement tools, sharing best practices, and engaging enterprises, service providers, governments, and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in collaborative efforts. 

Everest Group’s Commitment to Action is to grow the impact sourcing market to half a million in three years. As the CGI community knows, making and keeping commitments isn’t easy. Despite this, we know the antidote is as simple as it is true  we must keep going.

Eric and Rita will join colleagues and global stakeholders at the event to discuss impact sourcing, the potential it provides to companies and underserved communities around the world, and initiatives to help companies incorporate impact sourcing into their business models.
