The Launch of the U.S. Global Development Lab 

With Former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah

 

Please note that Registration has now CLOSED for this event. We welcome you to join us on Thursday, April 3rd on twitter @globaldevlab and by watching the livestream at www.usaid.gov/globaldevlab/live

Please join former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and USAID Administrator Dr. Rajiv Shah for the launch of the U.S. Global Development Lab.

A first of its kind, the Lab will develop and scale groundbreaking solutions to end extreme poverty and improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people. It is a bold, new collaboration between USAID and a diverse group of partners from the private sector, NGOs, universities, foundations, and science and research agencies.

The event will engage world-class innovators to discuss how we are tackling the greatest challenges of our time--from ending child death to fighting climate change to giving every child a light to read by at night.

Please note that the time of this event changed from the original invitation.  Doors will open at 1pm. 

Following the main event you are invited to join a Co-Creation Workshop led by Amy Smith from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT). Based on her work with local innovators through international design summits, Amy will demonstrate the importance of co-creation and the powerful results that can be achieved when local stakeholders co-design solutions to the development challenges faced by their communities. 

 

This workshop will take place at the same venue starting at 4pm. We request that you note if you would like to attend on the registration form.
