Applications Open: SDG Innovation Accelerator for Young Professionals

October 28, 2022

The application period to join the SDG Innovation Accelerator (formerly the Young SDG Innovators Program) for 2023 is now open. You can apply to join the SDG Innovation Program here.  

The SDG Innovation Accelerator is a 9-month program for Young Professionals. It is designed to engage young leaders working at UN Global Compact companies in driving innovation in their organization and delivering tangible solutions with potential market and social value for their company.

This Accelerator aims at fostering a new community of emerging leaders disrupting traditional ways of doing business and spearheading change for true SDG impact. The program connects entry- to mid-level managers –aged 35 and younger – across diverse business units to generate bold yet viable solutions that can positively impact the company and the SDGs. By focusing on young professionals from various business units, the program aims to mainstream SDG innovation and future business leaders and decision-makers to become advocates and working practitioners of SDG innovation and spread this practice across their companies at all levels.

Watch UN Global Compact Network USA's "An Introduction to the SDG Innovation Accelerator" webinar to learn more about the program and hear from past participants. Applications will be accepted until January 12, 2023. The program will start in late January 2023.
