Much of the discussion around the UN Foundation Board meeting today focused on how the UN Foundation can most effectively support the UN during Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s second term, especially as partnerships have been identified as one of the top priorities.  The Board underscored its commitment to helping the UN achieve this vision, and was pleased the UN Foundation has helped bring about a transformation in the way the private sector and public approach working with the UN.  I have attended many of the UN Foundation Board meetings, and this one has already stood out as a great discussion.  For me personally, today’s meetings and conversations were a reminder not only of the deep experience and wisdom the UN Foundation Board has to share, but how our collaboration with the UN is a positive force for innovation.
