UN Global Compact Office
On June 24, 2004, Secretary-General Kofi Annan convened the Global Compact Leaders Summit at the UN Headquarters in New York. The design of the Summit was unique in that it employed a methodology known as Appreciative Inquiry, created by David Cooperrider and colleagues at Case Western Reserve University. Over 500 leaders from around the world gathered to explore the global struggle for corporate responsibility.
