2017 AGENDA

Reimagining the Global Economy: Uplifting the Invisible Class

Global prosperity can only be achieved with an economy that provides equity and
opportunity for everyone. With the theme “Uplifting the Invisible Class”, the 2017 Annual
Meeting will challenge participants to outline a vision for a new, global economy – where
the poor, underserved and dislocated middle class are viewed as untapped assets for
entrepreneurship, job creation and economic growth.

We will examine the “Invisible Class” in six tracks: The Identity Class, The Working Class, The
Generational Class, The Self-Sufficiency Class, The Aspirational Class and the Excluded Class.
Attendees will be challenged to generate “5 Big Ideas” around each Working Group topic
that will serve as a blueprint for action.
