Diana Walker focuses her work with influential global thought leaders—businesses, governments, organizations, entrepreneurs, and philanthropists— to develop innovative, powerful strategic business and partnership strategies inside the Sustainable Development Goal framework to maximize work for positive social impact globally and locally. Diana has spent more than 15 years working with companies, governments, innovation impact groups, and NGOs building public private partnership eco-systems and thought leadership platforms for influence globally and locally.
