The Session Topic:

We have often heard the mantra that “Diversity is good for business”, but what does that mean outside the US?   How do you connect markets, commerce, finance and technology to advance practical solutions to common challenges when cultures are worlds apart?  How do you achieve bottom-line success while benefiting societies and contributing to a more sustainable and inclusive global economy?  These questions-and more-will be addressed by global thought leaders from a variety of industries.
