On November 15 and 16, 430 members of the global development sector convened on the Microsoft campus in Redmond, Washington, for Bridges to Breakthroughs: How partnerships and innovation are changing the world, a two-day conference hosted by Global Washington.

Global Washington is a broad-based membership association of nonprofit organizations, foundations, businesses, government, and academic institutions that promotes and supports the global development sector in the state of Washington and advocates around common policy goals.

Bridges to Breakthroughs, Global Washington’s second annual conference, brought a wide array of actors in the sector together to network and to learn from dynamic speakers, including representatives from USAID, Global Impact, The Grameen Foundation, PATH, World Vision, The Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, The United Nations Millennium Campaign, and many other innovative companies and organizations. These leaders discussed strategic approaches for strengthening cross-sector partnerships; promoting scientific and technological breakthroughs; and harnessing the collective leadership of the region’s scholars, entrepreneurs, business leaders, scientists, philanthropists, and advocates.
