This week, GBC-Education will host a high-level meeting, ‘Stronger Investments, Greater Impact,’ that will bring together leaders from business, foundations, and donor governments to build a dialogue on partnerships to deliver education to marginalized children across the world. At the core of their conversation will be the creation of an inclusive dialogue to create concrete opportunities for working together to deepen the impact of engagement in education.
