WASHINGTON, DC | March 3, 2014 - PYXERA Global proudly announces a reception on April 7, 2014, from 5 to 7 pm at The Source at The Newseum in Washington, DC. The reception, generously sponsored by EY, will follow this year’s Public-Private Partnership Forum on Catalyzing Growth in Emerging Markets, broadcast live from the Knight Studio at the Newseum, which will feature a series of conversations between senior public, private, and social sector leaders who will address the ways in which cross-sector interests converge to achieve shared value.
Members of Congress who are honorary co-hosts of the event include Congressman Tom Latham, Congressman Jim Moran, and Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
The reception honors those committed to a future of partnership, at the same time that it convenes an elite community of stakeholders, including those participating in the Forum, other Members of Congress and their staff, and an impressive array of corporate, private, and public stakeholders pursuing global engagement opportunities.
