Building collaborations

Join us in supporting a global community of changemakers. Grants and in-kind contributions provide mission-critical support for our events, financial assistance programme, and impact areas. Our current donors and nonprofit partners include:

Driving Responsible Leadership

At the 2020 Annual Meeting, a new multi-year partnership between Accenture, Global Shapers Community, and the Forum of Young Global Leaders (YGL) was launched to help organizations and individuals cultivate environments in which responsible leadership can flourish.

The Responsible Leadership Programme aims to equip Shapers and YGLs with the skills, attitudes, and capabilities required to lead responsibly amidst unprecedented global challenges.

Mobilizing for Impact

Inspired by Proctor & Gamble's #WeSeeEqual campaign, Global Shapers around the world mobilized to raise awareness and fight for gender equality.

With support from P&G, the Global Shapers Community launched a call for solutions to gather the best ideas from around the world. Over 100 city-based Global Shaper hubs submitted proposals for grassroots projects, and five hubs were selected for their winning ideas: Giza, Ahmedabad, Cape Town, Belo Horizonte, and Minsk.

We are becoming increasingly aware that solutions to our global challenges must purposefully engage youth, at all levels – locally, regionally, nationally and globally. This generation has the passion, dynamism and entrepreneurial spirit to shape the future

— Prof. Klaus Schwab, Founder and Executive Chairman, World Economic Forum
