About the Summit

California Leading

The Milken Institute California Summit is an invitation-only event that gathers the state’s most prominent leaders for a full day of discussions regarding California’s most pressing issues, along with an examination of key industries, economic trends, and global challenges.

Organized around the theme, “California Leading,” this year’s event will present and uncover actionable intelligence, bold ideas, and new opportunities to support the state’s growth agenda.  Specifically, the 2017 California Summit will address California’s role as a leader—in business, culture and social policy—and will explore how best to leverage the state’s economic and cultural advantages to its citizens’, and potentially the nation’s benefit.
