Fortune CEO Initiative 2017September 25, 2017. NY, NY. USAWorkforce Development, Training, and EducationSuccess in today’s economy has been made possible by highly skilled workers. With the exponential rise in the advancement of technology, companies’ ability to educate, retrain, and reskill their workers has become a critical competitive advantage, while also yielding higher wages and social mobility. A shortfall in government support has increased pressure on companies to bolster their learning and development functions, forcing them to increasingly align with business strategies. This discussion will highlight practices to prepare a workforce to adapt and perform in an ever-changing landscape of technology and work environments.

USAInvesting in WomenThe benefits of retaining and promoting women in the workplace have been well documented, from increased employee collaboration rates, to company profitability and stronger national economic output as a whole.

This discussion will focus on immediate, practical steps that can bring improvements both within companies and for society at large.

BREAKFAST: Networks for Action - Advancing Shared Prosperity through CollaborationHosted by The Allstate Corporation (by invitation)At a time when 87% of Americans think businesses should do more than make money, it’s never been more urgent for leaders to use their platforms to define prosperity more broadly. This breakfast will convene a select group of CEOs and best-in-class organization heads who are actively engaged in efforts to improve people’s lives and rebuild trust in business.Rebuilding trust with the public is a challenge facing corporations, and no one company can tackle it alone.

Fortune CEO Initiative 2017September 25, 2017. NY, NY. USAHarnessing the Digital Health Revolution to Help BillionsThe global population reached seven billion in 2011. It is expected to reach eight billion by 2024. Expanded access to health care is considered a tool to slow this rate of growth. Lower rates of infant mortality and longer life expectancies typically result in lower birth rates in societies. How can the healthcare industry meet these demands when the public sector is increasingly unwilling, or unable, to assist in the burden of cost-sharing? And what role can other industries, such as agriculture and education, play in supporting these efforts? Co-Chairs:Bernard Tyson, Chairman and CEO, Kaiser PermanenteMark Bertolini.
