New Members Joining the GSDR Community of Practice for 2022

Since 2021 a group of highly motivated professionals from the Latin American and Caribbean Region are forming the GSDR Community of Practice (CoP) , striving to maximize co-benefits and minimize trade-offs to drive faster implementation of the Global Sustainable Development Report (GSDR). Breaking down silos between sectors and stakeholder groups they started to generate solutions for policy coherence that enable a smoother implementation and foster a culture of working collaboration. 

Now this group is welcoming additional new members, who will add to the discussions and activities with their projects, ideas and expertise for translating the global to the local and thereby contributing to the implementation of the SDGs.

Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues on Global Solutions Summit 2022

In the scope of a green technologies dissemination initiative implemented by GIZ in cooperation with the Global Solutions Initiative (GSI), the global circular economy agenda is being advanced through a series of Circular Economy Solutions Dialogues (CESD). They aim to inspire a conducive circular economy (CE) narrative feeding into the G/T20 process, building on the momentum of commitments on the circular economy and focusing on both analyzing mechanisms scaling-up circularity and devising context-sensitive strategies for their broad implementation.

Many GLAC Network members especially from the Solutions Lab Community are participating.

The CESD hosted two multi-stakeholder panels at the hybrid Global Solutions Summit 2022:

  • "Circular economy and global value chains" on March 28th.
  • "The growing imperative for a circular economy" on March 29th.

#Break the Bias on International Women's Day

This year's International Women's Day campaign asked us to reflect on how we can collaborate and #BreakTheBias to create a feminist future.

As a contribution to this discussion on 8th March, the Women's Leadership Taskforce of the Gender Alliance hosted a conversation with CEOs Ms Rama Kirloskar, Joint Managing Director of Kirloskar Brothers Limited (KBL), and Mr Baudoin Denis, CEO, BMW Group Norway.

They discussed how these two leaders conduct Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) initiatives in their own organizations, and what drives them to be role models and get their inputs for accelerating gender equality.

Let's #BreakTheBias together! If you missed it, watch the recording.

Die Global Leadership Academy

Die Welt steht vor immer komplexeren Herausforderungen. Um diesen zu begegnen, braucht es einen nachhaltigen Paradigmenwechsel in der internationalen Zusammenarbeit – und Verantwortungsträgerinnen und -träger, die Veränderungen vorantreiben.

Die Global Leadership Academy schafft Räume, in denen Entscheidungsträger aus den Bereichen Politik, Wirtschaft, Forschung und Zivilgesellschaft zusammenkommen und die weltweiten Herausforderungen aus einem völlig anderen Blickwinkel betrachten.

Im gleichen Zug befähigt die Global Leadership Academy globale Verantwortungseliten in Deutschland und der Welt, Transformationen zur Umsetzung der Agenda 2030 anzustoßen.

Der Ansatz

Leadership and Innovation Labs

Auf Basis mehrjähriger Erfahrung hat die Global Leadership Academy einen effizienten Ansatz entwickelt, um Wandel auf persönlicher, struktureller und systemischer Ebene zu ermöglichen – die Leadership and Innovation Labs.

Leadership and Innovation Labs schaffen einen Raum für dialogischen Austausch, Vernetzung und Innovation, stets im Hinblick auf eine bestimmte gesellschaftliche Herausforderung.

Dieser Ansatz berücksichtigt auf besondere Weise die enge Beziehung zwischen der Führungskräfteentwicklung von Schlüsselakteuren und dem Beginn systemischen Wandels in Organisationen, Netzwerken und unserer Gesellschaft.

TEILNAHME UND BEWERBUNG

Teilnehmende der Leadership and Innovation Labs durchlaufen einen mehrstufigen Auswahlprozess: Zunächst reichen die Bewerberinnen und Bewerber, basierend auf einer offenen Ausschreibung, ein Motivationsschreiben sowie ihren Lebenslauf ein. Nach einer ersten Vorauswahl finden weiterführende Gespräche zu Zielen, Herausforderungen und Erwartungen der Bewerber statt. Die endgültige Zusammensetzung der Lab-Gruppe erfolgt auf Grundlage dieser Gespräche sowie bestimmter Diversitätskriterien (z.B. Geschlecht, Arbeitsbereich, Organisation, Land).

Die Aktivitäten


Geschichten des Wandels

Die Global Leadership Academy ermöglicht den Wandel auf persönlicher, struktureller und systemischer Ebene.

Unsere Mitglieder bringen die Einblicke und Innovationen auf vielfältige Weise in ihren eigenen Kontext ein: zum Beispiel durch Projekte zur Veränderung, neue Kooperationen oder durch veränderte Führung.
