FORDHAM UNIVERSITY’S GABELLI SCHOOL OF BUSINESS was recently chosen to serve as the host for One Young World’s 2022 Summit USA Hive in New York City. The School was one of only four educational institutions around the world in the U.S., Japan, Brazil, and South Africa to be given this prestigious designation.

The One Young World 2022 Manchester Summit took place in Manchester, England on Sept. 5-8, and convened more than 2,000 of the brightest young leaders from every country and sector who are working to accelerate social impact both in-person and digitally.

During the four-day event, delegates from 190+ countries were counseled by influential political, business, and humanitarian leaders, such as Ban Ki-Moon, former UN Secretary General; Sir Bob Geldof, singer, songwriter, author, and political activist; and Ibtihaj Muhammad, Olympic fencer and 2016 Olympic bronze medalist, entrepreneur, and activist. These were a few among many others who inspired delegates to harness the knowledge and skills needed to become impactful changemakers.

While many delegates and ambassadors have been able to attend the Summit in person in the United Kingdom, those who cannot have attended through the “Summit Hives,” participating in portions of the Summit in Manchester through live streaming, while also focusing on a theme that engages them on-site through panel discussions and workshops.

The New York City Hive took place on Sept. 6, 2022 on Fordham University’s Lincoln Center campus. Participants at the NYC Hive were able to live stream with attendees in Manchester, and Barbara Porco, PhD, associate dean of graduate studies and clinical professor of accounting, addressed participants in New York and across the pond.

“We are delighted that the Gabelli School of Business has been chosen to serve in a capacity that allows young people to convene and to focus on pressing global issues and Social Ethical Leadership — a theme that is closely aligned with the mission of this school,” she said.
