Conversations with the C-Suite: Powering Global Recovery and Change

September 28th - October 1st, 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 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?

WACA will feature U.S. and international executives from a range of sectors to discuss topics such as: the future of finance; China’s technology challenge; stakeholder capitalism; climate-centric innovation; how crisis shapes next-gen leaders; how do we get back to work – and where; regulating big tech, social networks and privacy; business as a driver of social change - and more.
