Internews President & CEO, Jeanne Bourgault at the Concordia Summit in New York During the 2017 UN General Assembly

Bourgault was featured as part of her participation in this year’s UN General Assembly (UNGA) and related events, an annual gathering for world leaders to discuss and work together on a wide array of international issues.

Concordia’s Annual Summit is a 2-day convening of over 2,000 leaders, influencers and decision makers working to drive transformative action by building partnerships for social impact.

Bourgault participated as a Principal in the Strategic Dialogue focusing on post-conflict investment from Colombia to Cyprus. The participants in this session discussed the transition from a focus on the delivery of foreign aid to investment in economic growth – one that is critical for any country’s post-conflict, long-term development.
