The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls upon all stakeholders – the United Nations included – to transform the way they work. The Secretary-General’s current reform efforts require launching a series of complex change management processes. But change is never easy and, for organizational reforms to succeed, knowledge must be leveraged and staff must learn how to design and implement change management processes.

The United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) recognizes that it is crucial to support the United Nations with building change management capacity system-wide; and not just in the form of traditional training and technical skills, but also through creating networks, sharing lessons learned and advising those leading transitions.

On Thursday, 6 June UNSSC will host, in collaboration with the Permanent Mission of Argentina and the Permanent Mission of Italy, an open event on the role knowledge plays in supporting UN reforms.

Join us in the conversation with senior leaders and other champions of change to learn from their experiences and be inspired.

Date: 6 June 2019

Time: 3:00 - 4:30 pm
