Global Conference 2018

As complement to the gender-related public programming conducted at the 2018 Global Conference, the Milken Institute will host a private, off-the record discussion focused on what's next for women. Following the timely discussions held on stage that will amplify these issues to a global audience, it is of equal importance that an open and honest dialogue can occur offstage, allowing stakeholders to deliver on the rhetoric and define clear objectives, identify metrics of success, and create avenues for collaboration.

The Milken Institute intends to serve as a neutral, nonpartisan platform for a highly-curated group of industry leaders to convene and explore solutions to equality issues together, sparking the potential for new policy initiatives, innovative advocacy platforms, future funding strategies, and so on. Participants in this private session are encouraged to come prepared with concrete examples of how their companies are measuring the impact of diversity, successful inclusion models that can be shared, and opportunities for programmatic partnership.

This is a private session. Admission is by invitation only.
