The Global Business Coalition for Education is creating a movement of businesses dedicated to using their voice, expertise and innovation to end the global education crisis.

This is a simple, easy way to show your company’s commitment to education as a key issue.

We’re in a global education crisis. Fewer than one out of every two young people are on track to have the most basic skills for employment in less than ten years, we’re in a global education crisis. Companies are already finding talent shortages and the lack of equitable education is holding back economic growth, innovation, improved health and climate action.

We encourage business leaders – Entrepreneurs, founders, CEOs, C-Suite, Presidents, Partners and Managing Directors – to add their name to the growing list of trailblazers promoting quality education and skills for all young people. We aim to highlight these corporate leaders adding their voice to the statement below about the importance of investing in education.

“Education is the key to unlocking big change for the next generation, ranging from climate action and improved health outcomes to economic growth, job creation and social justice. As business leaders, we commit to harnessing our expertise, leadership and resources – and collaborating with leaders in the public and private sector – to advance the Sustainable Development Goals and ensure that every child has the best start in life, a safe place to learn, and skills for the future.”
