CEO Forum

Building a More Civil & Just Society

A Series of Leadership Forum Conversations To Foster Action

No one could have predicted this confluence of events just a few months ago: beginning with COVID-19, the ensuing economic crisis, then the death of George Floyd and now the seismic street protests driving a sea change in public consciousness. CEOs across the corporate landscape have added their voices to the discussion and are determined to use their influence to make lasting change; corporations are in a unique position, and indeed are often expected to, address issues of racial injustice and social unrest.

For over 100 years, The Conference Board has helped the world’s leading companies—and society at large—navigate crises and develop reasoned solutions for our country. 

The CEO Forum series will feature CEOs from across American industry who will focus on actionable insights to address underlying challenges of economic opportunity, childhood education, health care, workforce skills development, workplace equality and corporate governance.
