United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will receive the Concordia Leadership Award   this year 2020 for the Public Sector at Concordia’s 10th Anniversary Celebration on September 24th.

The Concordia Leadership Award recognizes global leaders within the public, private, and nonprofit sectors who inspire others through their ability to turn vision into impact.

 Mr. Guterres, the ninth Secretary-General of the United Nations since January 2017, will be awarded for his exceptional work. Guterres as a lifelong public servant, his integrity and his ability to bring people together in service of the world’s most vulnerable is honored by Concordia with the Leadership Award for 2020.

This year marks the 10th anniversary of the non-profit organization dedicated to form cross-sector partnerships to tackle global social issues with substantial results. Concordia was founded in 2011 by Matthew A. Swift and Nicholas M. Logothetis.

At the organization’s 10th Anniversary Celebration, UN Secretary-General Guterres will be accepting the Leadership Award, along with environmental activist Christiana Figueres.

Coming up is Concordia’s 10th Annual Summit (September 21-25) which will host world leaders to share their vision in an open, transparent, and inclusive virtual forum. Heads of state, CEOs, NGO executives, and changemakers will discuss the crucial global issues generated  by the Covid-19 pandemic in order to initiate partnerships to tackle them.

Prior to his appointment, Mr. Guterres served as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees between 2005 and 2015 and was Prime Minister of Portugal between 1995 and 2002 (two terms), creating multilateral cooperation to transform the European economy, and also induced fellow leaders to commit to refugee protection during the severe  displacement crisis.
