The UN Global Compact has shared a special appeal for a corporate response to the COVID-19 pandemic: for all companies to take collective action to stem the outbreak through implementing our Ten Principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. Businesses are also being called upon to stand together to facilitate business continuity for a fast recovery. Effectively addressing this crisis requires an active response from governments, business and the whole of society. 

You are invited to register below for the first live session in a series of special live webinars that will highlight the existing and new approaches to leadership in a time of global crisis. In this session, you’ll hear from leaders in the United Nations, Government, and business, who will share their experiences of working to respond to COVID-19 and discuss how to pursue immediate and coordinated action across business, the UN system, and Government.
