Fortune, together with McKinsey & Company, convened a new conference rooted in the idea that leaders in every industry are confronting the need to transform their organizations for the digital age. New technologies, new competitors, and new consumer expectations make this an urgent requirement. The conference was designed to put the spotlight on companies that are doing this well, and to assist others at various stages of their transformational journeys.

Brainstorm Reinvent is a 1.5 day, invitation-only gathering of C-suite leaders. 2018 participants included CEOs Stewart Butterfield of Slack, John Furner of Sam’s Club, Mindy Grossman of Weight Watchers, Gregory Hayes of United Technologies, Barbara Humpton of Siemens U.S., Aaron Levie of Box, Mark Thompson of New York Times Co., and Tom Wilson of Allstate, as well as McKinsey Global Managing Partner Kevin Sneader; IBM VP and Chief Leadership, Learning, and Inclusion Officer Deb Bubb; P&G Chief Research, Development, and Innovation Officer Kathy Fish; Walgreens COO Alex Gourlay; Microsoft Executive VP Peggy Johnson; Dow CIO Melanie Kalmar; Wells Fargo Senior EVP Mary Mack; Former U.S. Secretary of Commerce Penny Pritzker; and McDonald’s Chief Digital Officer Farhan Siddiqi.

Brainstorm Reinvent co-chairs are Fortune Executive Editor Adam Lashinsky, Fortune Features Editor Matt Heimer, Fortune Senior Writer Beth Kowitt, and former GE Vice Chair Beth Comstock.
