Nashville, Tenn., Jan. 28, 2019 - Founder Jenny Eaton Dyer, Ph.D., has launched a new firm, The 2030 Collaborative, to provide consulting and outreach services for clients in the non-profit and private sectors for more strategic awareness, education, and activism, particularly for global health and development issues. The goal is to achieve a better, safer, more sustainable world for everyone through promoting awareness, providing education, and encouraging advocacy for the 17 U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including those related to poverty, health, hunger, education, clean water, sanitation, peace and justice.
Formerly, Dyer directed the faith outreach for the DATA Foundation, co-founded by Bono of U2, from 2002 until 2008, promoting education and advocacy for global AIDS and extreme poverty among notable faith leaders across the nation. For the past decade, she led Senator Bill Frist, M.D.’s, humanitarian organization, Hope Through Healing Hands, which has a mission to improve the quality of life for citizens and communities around the world using health as a currency for peace. In this role, she led various emergency relief campaigns, the Frist Global Health Leaders program, the Tennessee Global Health Coalition, and faith-based coalitions to enhance awareness and activism for global health issues such as maternal and child health, nutrition, HIV/AIDS, tuberculosis, and malaria.
With The 2030 Collaborative, Dyer will continue the work advocating for a better world. “The firm will aid in building relationships to strengthen advocacy for social justice issues in the faith, university, and private sector arenas, and it will advise and implement strategies to influence policy and funding,” Dyer explains. Other services will include tailored research projects (surveys, polling, analysis, etc.), fundraising plans, and educational materials for niche markets to address sustainable development goals.
“I’m excited to Chair the Advisory Board for The 2030 Collaborative and continue to build on years of impactful work with Jenny Dyer,” Senator-Doctor Frist said. “This new entity will provide an excellent resource for the global health advocacy community to draw on Jenny’s tremendous experience and expertise in choosing language, conducting research, and reaching faith-based and conservative audiences to shape policy and funding for global health and development.”
Advisory Board Member Kimberly Williams-Paisley echoed these sentiments. “I’m looking forward to working with Jenny to improve the lives of women and children around the world,” Paisley said. “Jenny’s leadership is critical in galvanizing a variety of voices across America to ensure that Congressional leaders consider global health a moral imperative as they make funding decisions.”
Other members of the Advisory Board include Rev. Samuel Rodriguez; Jen Hatmaker; Paul Osteen, M.D.; Mandy Arioto; Steve Taylor; Heidi Murkoff; Rev. Edwin Sanders; Sten Vermund, M.D., Ph.D.; Gary Darmstadt, M.D.; Durwood Snead; Porter DeLaney; and Jeremy Everett.
