    Conversations with the C-Suite:  Powering Global Recovery and Change
    a Virtual Conference - September 29-October 1, 2020

    2020 will forever be remembered as a year the world was plunged into interconnected crises: the global COVID-19 pandemic, mass unemployment, and upheaval across the United States over persistent racial injustice.  How will U.S. and international business leaders rise to these urgent challenges? Will they reimagine the role they play in addressing social problems by transforming companies and industries to contribute to social progress? How will redesigned workforces innovate and use technology to create a healthier, sustainable post COVID-world?
