Transforming global development for greater impact

The Posner Center for International Development has transformed Colorado’s global development community through a model of intentional collaboration.

Today, the Posner Center community is home to close to 200 organizations working in over 100 countries around the world. We are engaged, learning, and thriving.

With a refocused Vision and Mission we are aiming to be a major thought leader in global development, making meaningful contributions to best practices in the sector, with a focus on what we are learning about collaboration.

Our Vision is a more equitable and prosperous world.

Our Mission is to convene, connect, and catalyze the international development community to collaborate for greater impact.

Our Core Strategies to achieve our vision and mission over the next five years:

  • Convene: We convene by being the home for the Colorado global development community—both physically and virtually—and innovating, supporting, and sustaining collaborative community culture that is inclusive, engaging and creative.
  • Connect: We empower the Posner Center community to develop new relationships to share, increase capacity and promote our collective efforts and successes.
  • Catalyze: We transform international development work through our programs, evaluating and advancing best practices in collaboration, and promoting our innovative business model.
