Nominate Yourself Nominate Someone Else

Nairobi, 15 February 2019 - Global Compact Network Kenya is pleased to announce the 2019 SDG Pioneers Programme for Young Professionals (35 and under) — which will attract and recognize not only C-suites and leaders that have driven innovation through their business strategies and operations from the top, but also younger employees who are advancing the SDGs in their business from the bottom up.

By focusing on Young Professionals, this provides an opportunity for companies to highlight how their employees are advancing the SDGs and are indeed next generation leaders.

CEOs of UN Global Compact participating companies and/or other members of the leadership team can nominate their outstanding young employees and later on join them during the recognition.

Only applications from individuals working for UN Global Compact participating companies — either engaging as Participants or Signatories and have submitted at least one CoP and have joined the UN Global Compact by 30 September 2018 — are eligible to apply for the 2019 SDG Pioneers programme.

The winner of the Kenya programme will receive the title “2019 Global Compact Network Kenya SDG Pioneer”.

About the SDG Pioneers Programme

As part of its Making Global Goals Local Business campaign, each year the UN Global Compact recognizes a class of SDG Pioneers — business leaders, who are using business as a force for good to advance the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDG Pioneers play an important role in drawing attention to the SDGs and how responsible businesses can contribute to their achievement.

Childrens Rights and Business PrinciplesDeveloped by UNICEF, the UN Global Compact and Save the Children – the Children’s Rights and Business Principles (the Principles) are the first comprehensive set of principles to guide companies on the full range of actions they can take in the workplace, marketplace and community to respect and support children’s rights.

While the business and human rights agenda has evolved significantly in recent years, a child rights perspective has not yet been explicitly addressed.

The Global Compact Network Kenya, Save the Children- Kenya and UNICEF-Kenya are jointly spearheading the uptake of the principles in Kenya aimed at creating awareness and building capacities of local businesses to support Children’s Rights. For more information on how to engage with the principles, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots.

As part of its efforts to support Kenyan companies to implement the UN Global Compact's 10th Principle, the Global Compact Network Kenya has established a working group for participants interested in deepening their engagement on Anti-bribery and corruption efforts.

The champions group aims to inspire companies to attain high standards of corporate integrity and Anti-corruption compliance through dialogue, learning, advocacy, mentorship, experience sharing and skills development.
