On November 29, 2018, thirteen ECODIT team members attended the Society for International Development-Washington’s (SID-W) Annual Dinner, held at the Ronald Reagan Building and International Trade Center in Washington, DC. ECODIT was a Gold Sponsor of the dinner, which brought together academic institutions, nonprofits, the private sector and international development firms to recognize the extraordinary contributions of individuals who are improving lives around the world.

This year’s 2018 Annual Dinner honoree was Henrietta H. Fore, Executive Director of UNICEF and former Administrator of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Director of United States Foreign Assistance. Ms. Fore received SID-W’s award for Leadership in Development for championing public service, health, economic growth, education, and disaster relief for over four decades. The event also paid tribute to the late Kofi Annan, former Secretary-General of the United Nations, founder of the Kofi Annan Foundation and co-recipient of the 2001 Nobel Peace Prize. Mr. Annan’s exceptional leadership and life legacy of mobilizing peace and advocating for human rights were commemorated.

“ECODIT is proud to sponsor SID-W’s Annual Dinner,” said ECODIT President Joseph Karam. “As we celebrate our 25th anniversary, we are happy to join our colleagues in promoting partnerships and collaboration between key players in the sector, and facilitating the exchange of ideas and best practices to ensure sustainable development worldwide.”
