Generational advancements in artificial intelligence, automation and robotics are not only enabling new industries and redefining professions but also profoundly changing the workforce and the nature of human labor. This private session will include new research from the McKinsey Global Institute that addresses questions about the near-term future of work, which sectors will automate most rapidly, the impact of A.I. on wages, as well as counterintuitive evidence that suggests robots may actually create more jobs than they eliminate.

As Great Britain's political turmoil burdens its efforts to leave Europe, the E.U., sensing an advantage, is refusing to begin Brexit trade talks, and the United States, distracted by the glitter of inward-looking nationalism, is no longer a beacon of trans-Atlantic leadership. Britain's economy, Europe's viability and potentially tens of thousands of Brexit-impacted jobs and citizen rights are at stake. Which side emerges from the maelstrom stronger, and what should we expect in the year ahead, at what cost?

From Tel Aviv and Palo Alto to New York and London, environmental innovations have come in spades. These new advancements have been effective in countering climate change alongside their potential to improve corporate bottom lines. As we enter the next generation of energy infrastructure, how can investments in innovation and climate change technologies be catalyzed? How are tools like the SDGs supporting the private sector when making core business decisions related to their environmental and social impact?

We are now seeing disruptions to entire national infrastructure, corporate supply chains, with major losses in production and income, if not in human lives. This panel will discuss the proper strategy to combat and protect organizations as well as the myths surrounding what cybersecurity involves in the first place.

Among the EU's largest public companies, women represent a small fraction of CEOs and presidents, and less than a quarter of board members. Indeed, despite broad recognition of the problem, workplace gender bias and stereotypes persist. And yet, there are encouraging signs of greater opportunity and access for women seeking leadership roles now. This session will feature women who demonstrated fortitude, grit and intelligence to overcome significant personal and workplace challenges - learning disabilities, government oppression and conflict zones, among them - to reach the top of their professions.

Fending off incursions from ambitious disruptors, traditional financial powerhouses are looking to co-opt technologies pioneered by their challengers. From improving credit decisions through ever-deepening datasets to expanding investments in the Internet of Things and blockchain technology, the financial industry is rewiring its business models and its workforce. What do these changes mean for talent acquisition and team structure? How are they transforming access to finance in the U.K., Europe, and elsewhere? Can regulation keep pace? If not, what are the implications for financial stability and resilience?

More than a year after the election of Donald Trump, much of the political world in United States has turned upside-down, while financial markets seem to have turned ever-upwards. What has the record of rhetoric versus fact been for policy making in the areas of free-trade, globalization, and security relationships? And what are the economic prospects for the U.S. in the coming year, especially in light of corporate tax reform and a major deregulatory push by the administration?

With an estimated price tag of $172.5 trillion, there is little room for error when devising investment strategies to achieve the Global Goals using all capital sources--government, business, and private, including philanthropic capital. The Milken Institute is working with a range of partners to identify the best ways for individual philanthropists and family foundations to engage with the Global Goals by exploring innovative financing mechanisms and creative investment vehicles. This private session will bring together key leaders across sectors to explore ways that philanthropic capital can be maximized when investing in the Global Goals.

Much of the growth in global prosperity in recent decades has been driven by increasingly open markets in trade and financial flows. But the current populist backlash in a number of developed countries to the economic effects of liberalized trade is spurring reexamination of some long-held assumptions. With China pressing both the US and EU to recognize it as a market economy under WTO rules, what are the challenges for the WTO? Are multilateral trade agreements still likely, or are we falling into a world of bilateral deals?

From automated assembly lines to high-speed trading to driverless cars, machines are encroaching on work that was, until recently, uniquely human. Is the "Robot Apocalypse" a foregone conclusion? The answer may depend on your definition of robot - and apocalypse. What is certain is that whether AI becomes humanity's best friend or its replacement, the ultimate job killer or job creator, remains an open question. Whatever the outcome, society is heading towards it more rapidly than ever. This session explores where people and machines are headed, in concert or in conflict, and how to best live and work with the automaton next door.

The sharing economy's influence has grown to the point that it touches nearly every aspect of modern consumer life. New business models and an array of tech platforms have spawned a next-generation socioeconomic ecosystem in which home repair, media and entertainment, taxi service, vacation rentals, and just about everything else is available from a smartphone app. But to what end? As the shared economy grows, so do fundamental questions of privacy, civic duty, power, and unintended consequences (not to mention taxes). This session puts a gimlet eye on the seemingly boundless future of the collaborative economy.

The United Kingdom has been a leader in laying policy and regulatory foundations supportive of a vibrant and dynamic Fintech ecosystem. Essential to this ecosystem is collaboration among traditional financial incumbents and FinTech platforms. Moving beyond policy and regulatory intent to actual implementation, however, has proven difficult. Early results from the U.K.'s bank referral scheme and ongoing developments related to open banking standards demonstrate that despite good intentions, various frictions remain in fostering collaboration that ultimately threaten the viability of certain reforms. What will it take to address these frictions and how do we ensure good intentions become a reality? Please join us for this invitation only session to discuss solutions and steps forward.

Properly invested, philanthropic capital can reap world-changing dividends. Witness the Green Revolution, polio near-eradication, ubiquitous fintech platforms like M-PESA, transformative educational content like Sesame Street and breakthrough medications such as Kalydeco. As we adjust to the complexities of the 21st century, the philanthropic sector has been working alongside government and business to innovate new tools and perspectives that can reconfigure how philanthropic capital can be better deployed to maximize return. This session will showcase promising solutions being advanced across a range of sectors and geographies, including mission-related investments, social impact bonds, venture philanthropy, outcome-sensitive metrics, and public-private partnerships.

Globally, the number of people over age 60 will more than double by mid-century, and increasing longevity is poised to be a major driver of 21st century economic growth.

They represent a compelling market opportunity for a wide range of business sectors, including financial services, healthcare, technology, transportation, travel, and entertainment. The impacts of changing demography will touch all of us. How can companies capitalize? How can investors participate?

As Brexit nears, multinational corporations are reassessing their long-term investments in Britain, with many questioning exactly how Brexit will affect trade across the European Union. Meanwhile, as a result of the ongoing refugee crisis, a record number of refugees - some highly trained, many not - have made new homes in Europe and are eager to find jobs. As the region navigates these dual workforce challenges, this session will explore emerging priorities, the unforeseen obstacles, and creative solutions to a complex social and business challenge.

With the possible post-Brexit change in the UK's access to the single European market, what are the odds that London will lose its crown as the financial capital of Europe? Already, major rivals to the throne - Frankfurt, Paris, Dublin and others - are wooing the post-Brexit planners at major financial institutions, while British regulators, negotiators, and firms are working to keep London's financial flag flying high. This session will explore the impact that Brexit-driven changes in financial market platforms will have on the wider economy, how government and industry can best prepare, and which of Europe's best-performing metro economies are poised to prosper.

Often branded as entitled, self-involved and even lazy, the Millennial generation - more than 80 million people worldwide between 18 and 35 years old - may be the demographic cohort most prepared to lead a disrupted workforce into the digital economy. Millennials, the argument goes, are better multitaskers, more efficient collaborators, and more aware of social impact than their predecessors. Indeed, business, entertainment, media, government and philanthropy are sectors greatly influenced by Millennial leadership as it begins to dictate trends not only on social media but also in the boardroom.

China, India, and countries within Southeast Asia, Latin America, and other regions present vastly different risks and opportunities.

Brexit has dominated European economic and political discourse for months, with no sign of letting up. Given the post-Brexit forecast that 80% of SME lending will come in the form of debt, Europe needs the clear potential of capital markets to provide a liquid and sustainable source of finance for E.U. growth. This session, moderated by Michael Milken, will discuss the challenges and potential rewards of acting now - and the perils of waiting until it's too late.
