The Conference Board Mission
The Conference Board has a long legacy of providing trusted insights to businesses and society in times of crisis. Founded in 1916, we became indispensable as a source of nonpartisan, fact-based insight into an American economy and workforce transformed by World War I—and the flu pandemic that followed. After the devastation of World War II, we helped shape the Marshall Plan.
Today, our experts in the US, China, Europe, and the Gulf region are at work on every angle of the current crisis. Our COVID-19 Hub provides essential resources, which is why we opened it up to the public, not just our members.
