CGI members connect and collaborate year-round within nine broad and cross-cutting Tracks, each representing a topical global challenge or strategic approach. Each Track contains a number of stand-alone opportunities that bring members together to share knowledge, develop new Commitments to Action, and support work that is already underway. Tracks also contain Action Networks—small groups of CGI members that work on specific, ongoing topics.

CGI views girls and women (G&W) issues as a central theme to be integrated throughout members’ commitments and CGI’s meeting programming. Whether members are working on philanthropic or core business strategies to address global challenges—from alleviating poverty to increasing access to education—engaging G&W can lead to optimal results. CGI encourages all members to consider G&W in the design and implementation of their cross-cutting interventions whenever possible.
