Some see our increasing global interdependence as a necessary driver of economic growth, peace, and stability. For others, however, it is a source of increased conflict, economic inequality and social strife. What type of leadership is called for? What are the roles of international non-profits, global companies, leading academic institutes, philanthropists and our U.S. government?

The 2017 conference will examine these questions from a multi-stakeholder approach and a common vision of creating a more equitable, healthy and prosperous world.
