Billy Afghan, CEO of Genii Earth, to Lead Panels at COP28 in Dubai

PORTLAND, OR — Genii Earth, a leader in transformational consulting for global enterprises, proudly announces the selection of its CEO and co-founder, Billy Afghan, as a presenter and panel moderator at the 28th Conference of the Parties (COP28) in Dubai, scheduled to take place from November 30 to December 12, 2023.

In the Blue Zone, Ms. Afghan will lead a presentation and moderate a discussion centered on the strategic utilization of capacity building and multilateral collaboration to strengthen National Adaptation Plans. This session emphasizes the urgent need to exchange innovative ideas, escalate impactful initiatives, and unify climate efforts on a national scale.

On a second panel, Ms. Afghan will facilitate an intergenerational dialogue on unlocking finance for a just and equitable energy transition. The goal of this session is to amplify the diversity of voices and experiences among young professionals from developed, developing, and least developed countries, identifying capacity-building gaps and needs, and proposing solutions for addressing those gaps.

Ms. Afghan emphasizes the urgency of these conversations, stating, “Our global leadership capacities are no longer a match for the challenges we face. We need new norms of working, where multigenerational collaborations bring ideas to the table and, together, we move with courage to bring them to life.”

Addressing the leadership challenges of the energy transition, Will Hewett, Founding Partner of Genii Earth, will facilitate discussions at COP28 on developing new capacities, mindsets, and strategies for organizations committed to having every dimension of their work generate a net-positive impact on people and the planet.

Hewett notes, “This is one of the most exciting and daunting times to step up and lead. The leaders who will be most effective in the coming decades will be those who get real about the interwoven nature of work today and who are able to rapidly shift fundamental aspects of the way their work is done.”
