Dear Bpeacers,
Looking back on this year, I feel very grateful.

Grateful for the Bpeace volunteers and donors who recognize the value of our work, grateful for my colleagues and committed staff in the U.S., El Salvador, Guatemala and Afghanistan, and grateful for the Board's dedication to growing the Bpeace impact.

As Chief Program Officer, I see what it takes for our programs to be successful. That's why I'm also grateful for GLG (Gerson Lehrman Group) and its Social Impact practice. Who, you say? That's right. We don't talk enough about them.

GLG is the world's leading platform for professional learning. Through its 500,000+ members and additional experts, the company provides business leaders, investors, consultants, social entrepreneurs and other top professionals with knowledge and expertise in the short and long term.
GLG's Social Impact practice brings one-to-one professional learning to the social sector, helping top social entrepreneurs address their strategic and organizational challenges.
Since 2012,  GLG has been helping Bpeace source the high-quality business volunteers our Fast Runners need to grow their companies and create the jobs that lead to prosperity and peace in their communities. If we can't find the right expertise within our membership, or through our members' connections, we turn to GLG.
Meet some of GLG's talented experts who've rolled up their sleeves for Bpeace:
Email me and let me know what you are grateful for. Wishing you a very happy and peaceful holiday season.
Work hard, play hard, pay it forward.

Marla Gitterman
Bpeace Chief Program Officer
