2018 AGENDA

March 26 – 28, 2018 | Atlanta, GA

 

2018 Theme: Navigating a New World Order

Global prosperity can only be achieved with an economy that provides equity and opportunity for everyone. With the theme “Navigating a New World Order”, the 2018 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 six key tracks that will influence how successfully inclusive prosperity can be delivered: The Future of Work, Social Mobility, Financial Inclusion, Media and Culture, Technology and Innovation and Public Policy. Out of these tracks, attendees will be challenged to generate “5 Big Ideas” around specific topics that will serve as a blueprint for action.
