The annual UN Foundation Global Leadership Dinner is widely recognized as a signature event for the UN community and its most cutting-edge partners, bringing together leaders with deep insight and perspectives on the UN’s highest priorities, and creating an opportunity for participants to celebrate and forge new partnerships for significant impact. This high-level convening is a unique opportunity each year to forge new connections between world and UN leaders, corporate leaders, and innovators in one room.

Attended by royalty, world and UN leaders, corporate trailblazers, and celebrities, the awards gala honors excellence in many fields by those committed to making a difference in the world. This year’s honorees include UN Peacekeepers, BBC Yemen Correspondent Nawal Al-Maghafi, corporate leader Aviva, and US Senator Jeanne Shaheen of New Hampshire.
