WASHINGTON, June 9, 2014 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Global change leaders and practitioners from all sectors are coming together June 10-13 at InterAction's Forum 2014 to innovate and partner for greater global impact. The signature event put on by NGO alliance InterAction will draw more than 1,000 participants and feature speakers such as John Podesta of the White House, Jim Yong Kim of the World Bank, and Amina Mohammed of the United Nations.


"This is a time of daunting challenge and exciting opportunity for those of us committed to a more equitable, inclusive, and sustainable world," said Samuel A. Worthington, president and CEO of InterAction, the largest alliance of U.S.-based NGOs. "InterAction's Forum is where we can accelerate change. Over the past 30 years, InterAction and our members have been an active and influential voice for global change. To build on this progress, we must continue to innovate and collaborate in new ways."

InterAction's Forum brings together global leaders, practitioners, and young professionals across sectors to discuss the way forward on challenges and opportunities, from the global movement to end extreme poverty to the profound possibilities generated by new partners and new kinds of partnerships. This year's 30th anniversary agenda features more than 60 workshops – the most ever – as well as an opening reception on Capitol Hill and a special 30th Anniversary Gala Banquet (see the full agenda).  

"This year, as InterAction celebrates its 30th anniversary and the progress we have made over the last three decades, we look forward to co-creating our shared vision for the next 30 years with our partners," Worthington said.

InterAction's Forum 2014 is sponsored in part by gold-level sponsor UPS®. InterAction would like to thank all its sponsors who have made Forum 2014 possible.
