OPENING DISCUSSION: GLOBALIZATION AND THE GEOPOLITICS OF CHANGE

Global business is being rocked by political change. Brexit. The US election. Tensions in Asia. Populist and protectionist forces across the globe. Who will shape the new global economic order? Where will the trends and forces of globalization lead? To be successful, business leaders need to step outside their usual roles and plan for today’s “geopolitics of change.” This conversation will provide critical insights into what’s happening in the U.S., Europe, China and elsewhere in the global economy–and what this means for Asian executives working to build prosperous futures for their companies.

MARKETPLACE ASIA: CAPITALIZING ON TODAY, INVESTING IN THE FUTURE

Asia’s growth has moderated, reflecting a sluggish global recovery and slowing global trade–and the region faces its own political transitions. Still, as China’s economy rebalances, countries across Asia are building on the region’s momentum, offering robust middle-class consumer markets and strong business potential. Home to 60 percent of the world’s population, Asia is expected to triple its middle class population to some 3 billion people by 2030. By 2050, more than 50% of world GDP will be generated in Asia. Regional leaders weigh in on the new Asia marketplace – including its risks, opportunities and areas that will see the biggest growth, greatest impact, and strongest return.

BUILDING TALENT, CULTURE, AND WORKPLACES FOR THE FUTURE

In an era of increased economic volatility and technological disruption, Asia’s workforce presents both a challenge and an opportunity. Demographic shifts – in the form of longer life spans, falling birth rates and smaller families – are redefining workforce dynamics and workplace culture. Workforce skills development has become a necessity for companies looking to attract, grow, and retain employees that can remain competitive in their roles and meet changing business needs. Labor costs are on the rise while traditional “employee value propositions” and pay structures are being reevaluated. What can companies do to capitalize on these changes to find the best talent and create workplaces that truly meet the demands of the next generation of employees?

UNDERSTANDING HEALTH’S BOTTOM LINE—AND IMPROVING IT

It’s relatively easy to determine whether companies are profitable or not. They pull in more revenue than they spend. But finding the bottom line for human health is far more challenging. What makes us healthy? How do we know when we are healthy? What are the line items that we should be examining and improving if necessary? This isn’t just a personal puzzle to solve, but one for the entire business community to understand. We talk a lot about the business of health, but it may be the only business where we have little clue about what the bottom line is.

BETTING ON THE NEW BUSINESS MODELS

With new entrants such as Amazon and Walmart taking bold steps in the health care sector, and major acquisitions by Cigna and CVS, business models and the entire health care landscape are undergoing seismic shifts. New technologies—from A.I. to 5G—are transforming what we once thought impossible into everyday realities, moving the epicenter of health care from the doctor’s office to the smartphone and putting consumers more in charge of their well-being than ever before. All of these technologies have caused major changes to the grand multi-trillion dollar enterprise of medicine and given birth to a host of new business models and ways of connecting patients with providers and payers.

DROWNING IN DATA, GASPING FOR INSIGHT
Transformative Technologies Track Hosted by Intel
By some counts, the sheer volume of health care data could reach 2,314 exabytes (a single exabyte being equal to one billion gigabytes) by 2020. But this avalanche of information won’t necessarily foster knowledge, if history is any guide. Just 39% of doctors and 36% of patients used basic tools like patient health portals in 2018, for instance. And a massive swath of collected health data is never used at all. How can we transform the information at our command into actionable insight?

$300 billion a year. That’s how much work-related stress continues to cost U.S. companies in lost productivity. With much of today’s workforce always feeling the need to be “on” and rarely getting the necessary rest to perform at their best, a majority of organizations, not surprisingly, view employee well-being in the workplace as an essential component of their business strategy. So, how can companies best create a culture that acknowledges the link between well-being and performance?

RADICAL APPROACHES TO ALZHEIMER’S

The story of Alzheimer’s drug development has been one of consistent, and expensive, disappointment. Experimental treatments from drug makers like Eli Lilly, Merck, Axovant, Takeda, and Johnson & Johnson have failed in the past two years alone, costing the companies millions of dollars while dealing a blow to those hoping for scientists to discover an effective treatment. This string of failures has raised questions about whether the current R&D approach needs a fundamental makeover—either by focusing on prevention, different biological targets, or other shifts from the status quo. That’s why some biotech upstarts are focusing on new approaches to this public health quagmire—and could wind up changing the entire industry’s approach if they succeed.

THE PROMISE AND THE PERIL OF ELECTRONIC HEALTH RECORDS
EHRs were meant to usher in an era of safer, seamless, higher-quality, and more cost-effective care. But instead, physicians (already experiencing epidemic levels of burnout) complain about clumsy, unintuitive systems and the number of hours spent clicking, typing, and trying to navigate them. Critics say the computerization of workflows has stifled human communication in health care settings. Plus, EHRs still don’t really talk to each other. All the while, patients struggle to access their complete medical record. Can we train or innovate our way out of this mess, or does the U.S. health care system have to fix itself first?

PLENARY SESSIONS

Welcome and Big Get-To-Know-You

Policing National Security
As countries deploy new technologies to combat ever-morphing threats, concerns about privacy and justice rise to the fore.
Closed circuit cameras, facial recognition software, A.I. are all now often-used tools in the arsenal of our policing structures as the type of dangers change, budgets get tighter, and physical human oversight of our safety becomes more difficult. But who is policing the algorithm? What biases in the data sets are we passing on into the justice system and, as the U.K. exits the European Union, is our reliance on machine learning rather than cooperation with other police forces going to hamper security threats from bot farms and terror groups?

Interviewee:
Cressida Dick, Commissioner, Metropolitan Police Service
Moderator: Maithreyi Seetharaman, Co-chair, FORTUNE MPW International Summit, London

Banking on the World
Top finance leaders look to the future on global growth, risk, innovation, and the wealth gap.
There are two groups within the global economic system today: those that predict slowing growth and difficult times ahead and others that believe the world is on even keel. Political rhetoric and aggregate economic data tell one story, while global financial liquidity tells another. So how does the world’s financial industry approach this dichotomy while continuing to innovate and create strategies for the industry in the near term? And what impact will their decisions have on the world’s population, the industry’s ultimate customer?
Interviewees:
Ann Cairns, Executive Vice Chairman, Mastercard
Wei Sun Christianson, Co-CEO, Asia Pacific, and CEO, China, Morgan Stanley
Moderator: Nina Easton, Co-chair, FORTUNE MPW International Summit, London

Will the Real Economy Please Stand Up?
What is the global consumer’s wallet saying about the state of the world today?
To the warning cry of chief economists and central bankers around the world of an oncoming slowdown in the global economy, is the rallying cry of those who have the pulse of the real economy, producing actual goods and services. Are the goods we consume still being shipped and bought, be it shampoos and beauty products in a world terrified about being on the brink of a trade war or a downturn? Are the real economy’s indicators saying our wallets are open, even if macro signals are painting a picture of doom and gloom?

Alexandra Keith, Chief Executive Officer, P&G Beauty, Procter & Gamble

Fine-tuning TV
Can this innovator beat the tech behemoths at their own game?
ITV has morphed. It’s gone from being the U.K.’s leading commercial broadcaster, to a global producer of content for worldwide audiences, competing against Amazon and Netflix. The woman at the helm knows a thing or two about innovating and creating success stories that fly high. She’s now aiming that spirit of innovation to win eyeballs in a digital world, where advertising dollars are hard to find for traditional broadcasters. So can she shake off the idea that TV is dead and beat the tech behemoths at their own game?
Interviewee:
Carolyn McCall, Chief Executive Officer, ITV
Moderator: Alan Murray, Chief Executive Officer, FORTUNE

Future Proof: A.I., Machine Learning, and the Teachable Moment
What it takes to deploy new-tech for a winning company—and a better world.
The promise of A.I. is widely accepted in the business world, with the vast majority of firms believing it will be a competitive advantage in the future. Yet only a small portion are actually implementing it, and even fewer are doing so extensively. What’s the hold-up? The CEOs of two Dutch companies that are pursuing an A.I.-driven future—one via ‘booking experiences,’ the other with precise navigation and seamless transport—weigh the hurdles of embracing this next wave of technology, its undeniable upside, and the urgent challenge underlying it all: winning and retaining public trust.

But, how can Africa and its entrepreneurs ensure progress is inclusive and innovation helps entire segments of the population still struggling to fulfill basic needs?

Fighting The Hard Fight
Data protection, judicial cooperation and cross-border terrorism, online terror content, and MeToo—How many battles does it take to defend European democracy?
As the dark side of technology permeates every facet of society, Europeans are facing their biggest battle. How do you protect democracy? General Data Protection Regulation or GDPR was a hard-won fight, but a necessary one for a woman passionate about ensuring injustice of any kind in Europe is a thing of the past and that all citizens have the protection they need to embrace technology and the world without compromising their freedoms.

Moderator: Maithreyi Seetharaman, FORTUNE

To The Moon And Back
How one woman looked within and found outward success to reclaim her voice
Beautiful, surreal, wild, harmonic, alien. These are the words Alison Sudol uses to describe her first love, music. Words that also describe some of the characters she has played in her meteoric rise to stardom, like Queenie in JK Rowling’s Fantastic Beasts film series,
to Kaya in Amazon’s show Transparent. But her story is one of journeying to the stars, retreating from the attention that came with it, seeking help, and finding her way back to her roots with a new voice.

Banking on a Digital Future
What a customer wants is central to a frictionless future of banking in a digital world.
Continuing on the theme of innovation to meet customer demand, the banking industry is seeking to streamline the user experience and offer simple-to-navigate tools. Bank Leumi and Barclays are on the forefront of the digital-only banking revolution; in fact, both are now eyeing a gigantic market—the U.S.—that is, perhaps surprisingly, behind on this trend. Digitizing such a fundamental financial resource is a foregone conclusion for today’s consumers, but it presents a unique set of challenges for those driving the change: maintaining a personalized touch, safeguarding personal data, harnessing A.I.’s capabilities, and ensuring this latest wave of banking is more inclusive than the last. CEOs from the two banks will explain what it will take to set this new era’s winners apart.

Karen Frank, Chief Executive Officer, Private Bank and Overseas Services, Barclays

Moderator: Claire Zillman, FORTUNE

A Vision For Funding Innovation
From looking for the biggest returns, to looking for innovators with a sustainable vision, funding for entrepreneurs is changing in nature and so are the actors involved.
Is the funding environment for innovators and startups changing? Is the make-up of who gets funded changing, too? What impact is that change having on returns for investors/enterprises? And is today’s investment environment creating a bubble or a constructive environment for innovation incubation? How are big tech and the world’s largest investors trying to influence the innovation generation environment? How do they ensure they are also being inclusive as the world rushes toward a digital future? And is their approach to funding and the funded changing as fast as the environment around them?

Moderator: Nina Easton, FORTUNE

Trading with the World
Political uncertainty and brewing trade wars are creating challenges for the global economy, but can it also ferment opportunities?
In a political environment leaning toward protectionism, trade war rhetoric and actions between the world’s largest economies have slowed global trade growth to below the robust levels seen in past years. In an interconnected world, these growing tensions, both domestic and international, present a clear and present danger. There are knock-on effects of business investment being hit and global growth being stifled. What are the challenges ahead for Europe and the U.K. in this murky environment? And is there a silver lining of opportunities to be found amidst these dark clouds?

Shedding Light
Exposing atrocities to change lives of a generation
Khadija Al-Salami’s story is as gripping as the movies she makes. An 11-year-old child bride in Yemen, she was forced to leave school, endure the abuse of her husband, and finally “returned” to her family. Her path could have ended there, but it took a different turn. This filmmaker has turned the lens on the double standards in her own culture and the impact on women and children. Paired in conversation with Helle Thorning-Schmidt, CEO of Save the Children, we explore the simmering crisis of the Middle East’s most vulnerable and how to give those who have been invisible, until now, a new voice.

Conscious Luxury
How does an iconic brand stay timeless in a digital age?
One-hundred-and-twenty-five years ago years ago, Swarovski created “a stone for every woman, that every woman can afford.” Today the company is embracing its technological roots in a digital age. The company’s collaborations with fashion greats and Instagram influencers are keeping Swarovski on trend. Behind the scenes, the company’s investments in artificial intelligence and next-gen innovations are expected to sustain this family-driven brand into the future. But the company’s ethos remains: an icon can only shine and be a cut above the melee when it is sustainable and constantly evolving.

SAVING CAPITALISM FROM ITSELF

Former IMF chief economist and head of India’s central bank Raghuram Rajan argues that capitalism needs both top-down reforms and bottom-up policies to maintain trust in a market economy. It also needs populism. As the social and economic consequences of globalization become ever so apparent, how can we strike a balance between the three powerful forces have emerged–the state, markets, and our own communities–in order to ensure the capitalist systems works for everyone?

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT: DEVELOPING A NEW CONTRACT BETWEEN EMPLOYEES AND EMPLOYERS
Whether it’s baby boomers saving for retirement, Gen Zers paying off student loans, or millennials saving to buy a home, today’s generationally diverse workforce is grappling with a vast spectrum of lifestyle and financial priorities. How can businesses reimagine employee compensation packages with innovative offerings to retain talent and create benefits that respond to societal changes? With the explosion of the “gig economy,” how can companies better engage not only with their multigenerational workforce but also with their nontraditional employees (think: part-time, remote workers, returning retirees, contractors)? We’ll also explore the different ways employers can bring their workers into the decision-making process to evoke more transparency and trust within their organization.

DELIVERING ECONOMIC INCLUSION AND INVESTING IN EMPLOYEE FINANCIAL HEALTH
Hosted by Allstate
Roughly three billion of the world’s population is almost completely left off the economic grid. How can we leverage technology to deliver financial products that reduce inequality, build a sustainable path for broader and global economic inclusion, and make sure the next generation isn’t left behind? What steps can we take to deliver community investment, capital for lower-income groups and female entrepreneurs? What role can credit-building schemes and payday loans play in helping lift financial burdens and promote stability for families in need? As businesses look outward to address these global challenges, we’ll also examine why they need to look inward to help their own employees combat the rising tide of financial stress. How can companies invest in the well-being of their workers to improve their financial education, give them relevant investment tools, and make sure they have the ability to use these tools to actually better their lives?

FUTURE FORUMS

Focused discussions to explore opportunities for innovation and growth in four key sectors (choose 1 of 4):

THE FUTURE OF ENERGY

Global energy is undergoing an epic transformation. In much of the world, economic forces are prompting a move from coal to natural gas and renewable energy. Electric cars, though still a tiny slice of the auto market, are starting to give internal combustion-powered autos a run for their money. A shift from centralized to decentralized energy sources is gathering steam. All these changes are creating new winners and losers–among countries, industries, companies, and investors. And yet, for all this change, global greenhouse gas emissions continue to rise. What the global energy shift is and isn’t doing–and why.

Moderator: Jeffrey Ball, Stanford University


THE FUTURE OF FOOD

The world’s population is expected to grow to almost 10 billion people by 2050. With billions more mouths to feed and a growing appetite for protein among those in developing countries, global food demand is taxing the environment. As the effects of climate change decimate crops, urgent and effective solutions are required to secure enough good food for the future and ensure it is distributed properly to the world’s most vulnerable people.

THE FUTURE OF WATER

Globally, more than a billion people lack access to safe and clean water. Trends in Asia highlight three fundamental challenges to water supplies: scarcity, pollution, and climate change. That’s a problem not just for the drinking water but also for the security of food and energy. How to rethink economic development through a “water-nomic” lens.

Moderator: Debra Tan, Director and Head, CWR

THE FUTURE OF CITIES
More than half the global population lives in urban areas. And the number of megacities–those with populations greater than 10 million–has risen from 3 in 1975 to around 30 today. These population hubs have become hotspots for smog-causing greenhouse gas emissions. And they’re straining natural resources and imperiling human health. Cities aren’t going to stop growing.

GREEN FINANCE: ACCOUNTING FOR CLIMATE RISK
Companies have long claimed to be green. But there’s a difference between frothy public relations and hard-nosed corporate disclosure. From China to the U.S. to Europe, market regulators, persuaded that climate change presents material financial risk, are pushing companies to disclose that risk in a specific and structured way–and to ramp up greener investment mechanisms, including “green bonds.” Nowhere is the shift more potentially sweeping than in China.

There’s mounting global agreement about the need to tackle environmental problems, particularly climate change. But there’s no actionable consensus on how to do it at meaningful scale.

A WAY FORWARD: PARITY IN GLOBAL BUSINESS

TOWN HALL DISCUSSION
Women are seeking parity at a time when the ground underneath us all is shifting and cracking. A.I. and other disruptive technologies mean that, to succeed, women need to be more skilled, flexible, mobile, and tech savvy than ever. At the same time, relationships inside companies are recalibrating, sometimes uncertainly, to accommodate diversity and inclusion. What have we learned in a post-#MeToo world, what do we know about future challenges, and how do we build effective pathways for women to achieve pay parity and equal visibility in leadership?

There is no shortage of critical global challenges facing humanity today: demographic shifts, food scarcity, inequality, health care, education, climate change.

EQUITY: ON AND OFF THE PLAYING FIELD

As the first transgender woman to play in the Canadian Women’s Hockey League—and one of few within elite female sports—Jessica Platt found herself surrounded by overwhelming support: from family, friends, and her own teammates. She has also confronted challenges all too familiar to female athletes: lack of community support, meeting the demands of a rigorous training schedule, and the added burden of seeking outside employment to supplement modest athlete stipends. A story of perseverance from a fierce advocate for transgender rights and equity for women in sport—both on the playing field and off.

FEEDING THE WORLD

Sara Menker left a lucrative job on Wall Street to tackle an issue all too familiar to her while growing up in Ethiopia: massive imbalances in the global supply and demand for food. There is far too little visibility into the complex interplay of multiple dynamics impacting the global agriculture industry, particularly at a time when the system is stressed by climate volatility and an uncertain world economic order, she says. Hear how this innovative, data-obsessed entrepreneur is using artificial intelligence to track patterns, predict market shifts, and dramatically improve market efficiencies for the entire industry.

OPENING SESSIONS: LEADING WITH PURPOSE

There is growing agreement that injecting social benefit into the core of your business strategy is a key success factor for modern companies. It’s critical to a company’s ability to attract and motivate the best talent, it deepens bonds with consumers, and it serves as a steadying keel for corporate reputation in an era when the winds of social media can change at a moment’s notice. Moreover, it’s increasingly clear that governments alone are incapable of solving the most intractable challenges, making the role of the private sector more important than ever.

What’s less obvious—and the area to which The CEO Initiative is most directly dedicated—is how to undertake this task most effectively. These opening sessions will identify some of the best practices for engaging your workforce, your customers, and the community.

Opening Remarks: Alan Murray, President, Fortune, and Chief Content Officer, Time Inc.

9:00
THE SOCIALLY ENGAGED BUSINESS

The program will open with an agenda-setting interview with Jamie Dimon, the CEO of J.P. Morgan Chase, who also serves as the chairman of the Business Roundtable.

Moderator: Clifton Leaf, Editor-in-Chief, Fortune

THE ROLE OF THE CEO

Chief executives have long been judged by, and are expected to manage, the profitability of their company. Increasingly, their responsibilities have grown to include addressing social problems both internally and externally. This discussion will examine the critical importance of the CEO in creating a corporate culture that values and embeds pro-social objectives into its core business strategy.

MORNING WORKING SESSIONS

The group will break into smaller groups for in-depth working sessions.

Deploying Technology to Create Jobs, Not Destroy Them
As we enter the fourth Industrial Revolution, millions of jobs are at risk due to automation gains from artificial intelligence and robots. But opportunities are emerging to develop technology that will enable the creation of new jobs, combat climate change, and empower global entrepreneurialism.

Co-chairs:
Joe Kaeser, Chief Executive Officer, Siemens AG
Tiger Tyagarajan, President and CEO, Genpact
Subject Expert:
Catherine Havasi, CEO and Co-founder, Luminoso

Moderator: Geoff Colvin, Senior Editor-at-Large, Fortune

Workforce Development, Training, and Education
Success in today’s economy has been made possible by highly skilled workers. With the exponential rise in the advancement of technology, companies’ ability to educate, retrain, and reskill their workers has become a critical competitive advantage, while also yielding higher wages and social mobility. A shortfall in government support has increased pressure on companies to bolster their learning and development functions, forcing them to increasingly align with business strategies. This discussion will highlight practices to prepare a workforce to adapt and perform in an ever-changing landscape of technology and work environments.

Co-chairs:
Suzanne DiBianca, Executive Vice President, Corporate Relations, and Chief Philanthropy Officer, Salesforce
Deanna Mulligan, President and CEO, The Guardian Life Insurance Company
Dan Rosensweig, Chairman and CEO, Chegg
Subject Expert:
Rita McGrath, Professor, Columbia Business School

Moderator: Alan Murray, Fortune and Time Inc.

Harnessing the Digital Health Revolution to Help Billions
Health challenges in the developing world are well known, with many linked inextricably to poverty and a lack of basic medical care and infrastructure. Even in the 21st century, life expectancies in some developing nations are 40% shorter than those in industrialized countries. But the two worlds have more in common than meets the eye. Indeed, in the U.S., local and regional differences in population health status are so dramatic that life expectancies differ by as much as 20 years, depending on the zip code. That said, corporations and entrepreneurs are putting to work innovative approaches and technologies that can vastly improve and democratize care—across the globe. We probe what companies can do to lift the state of health everywhere, and ask what age-old paradigms we need to rethink.

Co-chairs:
Mark Bertolini, Chairman and CEO, Aetna
Bernard Tyson, Chairman and CEO, Kaiser Permanente
Subject Expert:
Gary Gottlieb, Chief Executive Officer, Partners in Health

Moderator: Clifton Leaf, Fortune

Energy, Environment, and Climate Change
Every area of industry will be impacted by climate change. In this new climate reality, businesses that can innovate and take advantage of the low-carbon transition will be the ones that secure a sustainable future. What leadership role should CEOs take in addressing the threat of climate change in their companies, in their communities, and on the global stage?

Co-chairs:
Nick Akins, Chairman, President, and CEO, American Electric Power

LUNCH AND TOWN HALL DISCUSSION

Making Inclusion a Source of Strength
Hosted by Salesforce
At a time when the debate over inequality has become a national flashpoint, companies need to rethink their approach to equality within the space they have direct control: the workplace. Every company aspires to achieve a diverse and inclusive workplace, and enjoy the resulting benefits of resilience and creativity, but efforts too often fall short. While the proportion of the nonwhite male population is growing, financial challenges for this demographic are also growing, as businesses struggle to implement the inclusive hiring practices that can expand access to prosperity. This town hall discussion will examine lessons learned from entry-level to C-suite recruitment and promotion, and explore the critical approaches necessary to yield success toward this goal.

Opening interview:
Arianna Huffington, Founder and CEO, Thrive Global
Moderator: Nancy Gibbs, Editorial Director, Time Inc. News Group

Followed by town hall discussion on inclusion and equality:
Firestarter: Tony Prophet, Chief Equality Officer, Salesforce

Platforms for Empowering Entrepreneurs and Small Business
If the best solution to poverty is a job, capital to create that job is key. Having seen the success of microfinancing and investments in scaling small-to-midsize enterprises/SMEs worldwide, what are the latest practices in fostering entrepreneurial eco-systems and creating a pipeline to funding where it is needed most? From capital and technology to speed to market, what tools are needed to successfully launch startups and scale them on a path to sustainable prosperity? This discussion will examine the causal connection between expanding investment in entrepreneurism and creating global stability where the need is greatest.

Tory Burch, CEO and Chief Creative Officer, Tory Burch
Penny Pritzker, Chairman, PSP Capital Partners
Dan Schulman, President and CEO, PayPal
Subject Expert: Linda Rottenberg, Co-founder and CEO, Endeavor Global

Moderator: Leigh Gallagher, Senior Editor at Large, Fortune

Shareholders and Boards: Long-term Mission and Focus
At a time when short-term profit pressures have never been more intense, CEOs who are committed to long-term value creation—and a purposeful long-term mission—need to work in close alignment with two key groups: institutional shareowners and their corporate board. This session will focus on best practices and methods for working with these groups.

Co-chairs:
Lynn Forester de Rothschild, Chair, E.L. Rothschild; Founder and CEO, Coalition for Inclusive Capitalism
Mark Weinberger, Global Chairman and CEO, EY
Subject Expert:
Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, Senior Associate Dean, Leadership Studies, Yale School of Management; Founder and President, The Yale Chief Executive Leadership Institute

Moderator: Alan Murray, Fortune and Time Inc.

Investing in Women
The benefits of retaining and promoting women in the workplace have been well documented, from increased employee collaboration rates, to company profitability and stronger national economic output as a whole. Yet, progress on advancing more women into positions of company leadership remains disappointing. How can we better address this recognized, ongoing challenge? This discussion will focus on immediate, practical steps that can bring improvements both within companies and for society at large.

Co-chairs:
Rick Goings, Chairman and CEO, Tupperware Brands
Julie Sweet, Chief Executive Officer, North America, Accenture
Subject Expert:
Alyse Nelson, President and CEO, Vital Voices Global Partnership

Moderator: Nina Easton, Chair, Fortune MPW International, and Co-chair, Fortune Global Forum

Company Culture, Incentives, and Productivity
In a recent report by Deloitte, culture and engagement were cited as the most important issue companies faced around the world. Eighty-seven percent of organizations cited culture and engagement as one of their top challenges, and 50% called the problem “very important.” Organizations that create a culture defined by meaningful work, deep employee engagement, and strong leadership outperform their peers and are better positioned to beat their competition in attracting top talent. This session will explore the latest approaches to improving culture and incentivizing high-performance in the workplace.

Co-chairs:
Stanley Bergman, Chairman and CEO, Henry Schein

THE ROLE FOR BUSINESS IN THE 21ST CENTURY

Global population growth, the disruptive impacts of climate change, and a populist spread of nationalism are among the key facts of life in the 21st century. Businesses will have to navigate these challenges to deliver on the aspiration of inclusive growth and shared prosperity. What are the critical investments companies need to prioritize now to be prepared for the challenges of tomorrow? Can businesses afford to define their success solely through financial metrics or will they have to incorporate broader societal factors in their operations and value?

As China’s growth slows and trade relations become more complex, Chinese companies and multinationals alike are recalibrating their strategies. Regulatory frameworks governing everything from IPR to market access are up for debate. The impact of China’s Belt and Road initiative is beginning to be felt. In the marketplace, digital forces are reshaping industry value chains, with China at the epicenter of these disruptions. This session will bring together business leaders from China who seek to expand their global footprint with multinational company heads who are actively engaged with China to discuss strategies for successful growth and investment.

As the forces of digital transformation take hold across business, CEOs must steer their companies toward breakthrough performance and drive a consistent stream of innovation that brings new value to all stakeholders.

SMART CITIES: DIGITAL SOLUTIONS FOR A LIVABLE FUTURE

Pre-Forum Lunch Discussion
Digital disruption is coming to the places two-thirds of the world’s population will call home by 2030: cities. The drive to make cities smarter and deliver more value for residents is transforming municipal infrastructure and services worldwide. For companies, and not just tech firms, this disruption represents a major business opportunity. Technology is reconfiguring traditional roles and divisions of labor. City governments may have to regulate but they don’t have to provide every type of service themselves. In fact, they can’t — and as a result, smart cities have become more intricate ecosystems, with the degree and mix of private-sector participation varying from city to city. Companies will need to adapt their products as cities become more digitally connected. Drawing on new McKinsey Global Institute research that sizes the potential impact of smart city technologies across a range of quality-of-life indicators, we’ll explore how city governments and companies together can maximize the potential to navigate the challenges of urban digitization.

ADVANCING WOMEN IN GLOBAL BUSINESS

Gender inequality in the workplace is real. Statistics around the gender pay gap and the lack of women in leadership roles have made headlines for years. Yet, the problem persists: women continue to earn a fraction of what their male counterparts take home, fewer than 5% of Fortune 500 companies have a female CEO, and women make up just 22% of S&P 500 boards. While advances have been made, the goal of achieving true parity is still far off. What barriers must businesses dismantle to truly empower and advance working women in the 21st century? A frank conversation about the slow and steady march toward gender equity and what it will take to see real change in businesses today.

Emerging economies will represent 62% of total global consumption growth by 2030 – the equivalent of US $15.5 trillion. Of the 71 major emerging economies around the world, 18 have been identified as outperforming global benchmarks and their peers. They include long-term success stories such as South Korea and Indonesia, recent high-growth economies like India and Kazakhstan, and less heralded nations, including Ethiopia and Uzbekistan. Combined, these outperformers have lifted about one billion people out of extreme poverty since 1990. Leaders of companies in emerging economies will discuss the outsized—and underappreciated—role that business plays in driving productivity and growth across global markets.

By 2030, artificial intelligence is expected to increase global GDP by 14%, making AI the biggest commercial opportunity in today’s economy.

In this session, we will bring together top executives leading this function for their companies to talk about how they’re driving growth beyond traditional vertical P&L models.

As corporations begin to align themselves more directly with social issues ­— like the environment, gun violence, and race — is there a moral case to be made for inclusion work?

Co-chairs David Agus, MD, professor of medicine and engineering and founding director of the Lawrence J. Ellison Institute for Transformative Medicine at University of Southern California, and Clifton Leaf, Fortune deputy editor, frame the key issues for Fortune Brainstorm HEALTH. Why isn’t disruption coming faster to health care despite all the new technologies at our fingertips? And, as America votes for a new president in less than a week, how do we make sure that our enormous health care challenges and opportunities play a larger role in the national conversation?

CHALLENGING THE OBVIOUS: WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO BE HEALTHY?

For years, ignorance was bliss when it came to our health. But today, big data is allowing us to ask questions we never thought to ask when it comes to the question of what it means to be healthy. If we can now take a blood test and see our entire molecular profile and risk for developing diseases like Alzheimer’s or cancer years ahead of time, how does this change the definition of health itself? What we can do today has led to a host of unanswered questions about what we should do: How can big data help us personalize disease prevention and wellness? Should businesses have access to such personal information about their employees? And, on a personal level, does having such data truly give us the wisdom we need to make the right choices?

WIPING OUT ALZHEIMER’S: THE RACE FOR A CURE POWERED BY WOMEN’S BRAINS

The Alzheimer’s tsunami is coming. More than 5 million Americans are currently living with the disease, and that number is expected to triple by 2050, placing a staggering burden on society. And nowhere does this burden weigh heavier than on the shoulders of women, who make up two-thirds of all Americans with Alzheimer’s, as well as the majority of unpaid caregivers for family and friends living with this disease. While a race for the cure is on, what can millions of Americans do today to prevent the onset of this debilitating disease? What does new research need to focus on?

STOPPING GLOBAL PANDEMICS BEFORE THEY START

Just a few months after the 2015 outbreak of Ebola was contained, another virus—called Zika—commanded the public stage. It took but 14 months after Zika’s first detection in Brazil for the virus to spread through Latin America and the Caribbean to Florida. So far, the threat has gone unchecked. And to be sure, after Zika, will come another global pathogenic threat—one, that public health experts worry, may do an even better job of outsmarting and overwhelming us. The question is whether technological advances can help us turn the odds. Can big data and genomic virus sequencing help us track emerging diseases, contain their spread and ultimately find antidotes for the next unknown pathology? Can it speed up the hunt for lifesaving vaccinations or drugs? The answers have an urgency like few others.

SPEEDING UP DRUG INNOVATION

Over the past three decades, the Tufts Center for the Study of Drug Development has estimated both the cost and the years it takes for companies to develop new medicines. In all that time, both measures have only risen. It now requires, on average, over a billion dollars of investment and upwards of a decade to move a new drug from discovery to commercialization. The question is: Why?  Why does consumer technology follow Moore’s Law—getting more powerful and cheaper each year—and biotechnology do the opposite? And how can we change this strange paradigm? Artificial intelligence and machine learning may help us speed up the process—but are we missing a more obvious fix?

THE SCIENCE OF AGING

Everyone wants to live longer. And medical science is racing to figure out ways not only how to extend lives, but also to improve them as we age. Thanks to recent breakthroughs in understanding about how aging happens at the cellular level, we are now closer than ever to both goals. Consider telomeres, the mysterious protective “caps” on chromosomes that play a role in both aging and cancer—and which get smaller over time, leaving the DNA in those strands unprotected. Can we stop the shrinkage—and what are the implications if we do?

THE BIOPSY’S DANGEROUS CASCADE: HOW TO LESSEN THE NEED FOR INVASIVE TESTING
Intervention Track Hosted By: Insigniam
Current medical tests are too often marred by high rates of overdiagnosis (“false positive” results) or they too often miss the danger altogether (“false negatives”). Many common tests today are neither sensitive enough to catch disease-in-the-making or specific enough in their assessments, leading to a raft of follow-up tests and procedures. The testing “industry” is utterly ripe for disruption—but can new technologies truly do a better job than the current crop of lab tests and imaging scans? Several new tools, claim their inventors, can do just that—accurately diagnosing everything from the flu to Alzheimer’s and HIV. Here, sorting the hype from the reality.

WILL DRUG PRICES EVER FOLLOW MOORE’S LAW?

Drug prices are increasing at a faster rate than any other cost related to health care, up 10% in 2015 and 14% in 2014. These drastic increases are forcing some patients to go into debt, file for bankruptcy, or skip doses to make each prescription last longer. But there is hope, with some big companies stepping in to keep drug prices low and accessible to people who need them most. Can rolling back prices be good for the bottom line? And how do we make sure that whatever remedy (legislative or otherwise) is proposed does not discourage risk-taking and R&D investment by the creators of today’s sophisticated medicines. A thought-provoking discussion on some of the most innovative solutions around drug pricing and the companies pioneering a new way forward.

REIMAGINING THE HOSPITAL

The waiting room in the doctor’s office may soon be a relic. In the not-too-distant future, say some healthcare visionaries, a patient will collect blood at home—or maybe DNA swabbed from a cheek—and send the data-packed biochip to his or her M.D. for diagnosis. We’ll use smartphones to scan for risk factors of high blood pressure or type-2 diabetes, “visit” with specialists remotely at medical kiosks—and when we do go for an in-person exam, we’ll spend the bulk of time seeing the doctor rather than reading old magazines in the waiting room. The virtual revolution, inevitably, will transform the hospital, too. So what does the new continuum of care look like across the board—and how long until we’re there?

YOUR SECOND BRAIN

Nestled in your gut is a so-called second brain. Called the enteric nervous system, it is made up of 100 million neurons that live in the walls of the digestive system and is responsible for many of the reflexes and processes that make our bodies work. It’s also linked with many of our emotions (think: stomach butterflies). Now, researchers are trying to understand how changes to the microbiome—the trillions of bacteria that also live in our digestive tracts—affect that gut “gray matter.” It’s a collision of worlds, in some ways, tailor-made for our new scientific tools.

WE’VE GOT TO TALK ABOUT THE DOLLARS

Any conversation about disruptive new technologies, innovation in medicine, or our unprecedented health care delivery system is incomplete unless we also talk about money. How do we rethink from top-to-bottom what providing value really means? What kinds of tools can best measure outcomes and help medical providers decide when any medical intervention is worth it? With precision medicine come costly targeted therapies and super-expensive drugs that will break the bank with an aging population. What will it take to begin pricing healthcare procedures based on the value they deliver, not on what the market can bear—and are there tools available now to get us closer to this goal?

THE EXERCISE CURE: THE HIGH-TECH SCIENCE OF FITNESS
Personal Wellness Track
Ask the average person why exercise is important and you’ll hear “because it’s good for you.” No wonder, then, so many people don’t bother doing it. A rationale so vague and uninspiring can’t possibly motivate the average person to jumpstart their activity. But advances in fitness tracking and physiological research have shed new light on the benefits of a body in motion. Exercise, even very little of it at a time, appears to slow aging at the cellular level—so much so that, if it could be bottled as a drug, it would be the most successful pharmaceutical ever developed. So what’s the best way to motivate the 80% of Americans who don’t exercise to start? Hint: The answer isn’t on your current fitness tracker.

HELP FROM AFAR: THE POWER OF REMOTE HEALTHCARE
Intervention Track Hosted By: Insigniam
Mobile technology is enabling doctors and patients to meet anytime and anywhere. Thanks to advances in telemedicine, physicians—even psychiatrists—can now monitor patients and do the kind of detailed patient workups and counseling that had once been possible only in an in-person visit. In theory, it’s easier for patients, it’s cheaper for healthcare systems, and the results (in early testing) seem just as good. So what’s stopping us from making remote healthcare the norm, especially for those with chronic diseases who need frequent monitoring? And how can other Uber-like platforms (doctors on demand) improve cost, efficiency, and the quality of care as well?

REINVENTING THE CLINICAL TRIAL
Research Track
Traditional clinical trials ask one question: Does an experimental treatment work better than nothing at all—or, the very least, the standard therapy offered patients. The problem is, in the current age of molecularly targeted medicines, we have too many questions to ask: Does a specific new drug, for instance, work well in one specific patient with one specific genetic mutation—and does it work better than a slew of other new targeted drugs? Luckily, there are better alternatives. One type of “adaptive” trial lets researchers ask questions as they go along—and get answers faster. We explore this revolutionary approach as it tries to solve the mysteries of one of the deadliest diseases in man: the brain cancer called glioblastoma multiforme.

21ST-CENTURY DETECTION AND PREVENTION
Value Chain Track 
As the burden of chronic ailments increases along with our aging populations, public health experts are in near-universal agreement that we need to a far better job of preventing disease. Another area of agreement? Targeted early care, smarter use of population-based data, and new technologies can help us get there. Our breakout participants get a primer in what the next generation of tech-driven looks like and explore the limits of what diseases we can truly forestall–and for how long?

PAIN: THE EPIDEMIC NEXT DOOR

More than 18,000 people died from opioid overdoses in the U.S. in 2014—an epidemic that the CDC has compared to the spread of HIV in the early 1980s. But can new tech and data-based solutions help to ease the crisis? By tracking irregular patterns of opioid prescription, for instance, it’s possible to pinpoint where overdoses are occurring and perhaps intervene. And electronic prescriptions can add an extra layer of security, making it difficult to illegally obtain and prescribe painkillers. Tracking opioid abuse, though, is only part of the challenge. Equally important is addressing the problem that leads many people to seek drug relief in the first place: their chronic pain. A vicious cycle; a candid discussion.

BIG DATA AND CANCER: STANDARDIZATION

Can big data really help us solve the oldest and cruelest riddle in the history of medicine? It’s a question that has tantalized many researchers, both public and private, as they try to glean insights from an ever-expanding and unruly stash of molecular and clinical information. Companies have shown how analyzing their own data streams can help them fix failures in customer service, speed up shipping, and price more dynamically. But biology is far more complex (and far less understood) than business. What will it take to master this new biodigital system? How do we standardize cancer-related data that comes in a Babel of terminology and from disparate platforms. And even if we can, is this the best way forward?

DATA-DRIVEN MEDICINE: APRES LE DELUGE

With trillions of terabytes of health data created every day, healthcare is adapting to the world of big data. The question is how new companies and old institutions can extract value from patient and medical data to help take healthcare to a new level. Big data is already helping to personalize medicine, predict epidemics, streamline treatments and even prevent deaths, but what’s next? What are some of the new, data-driven technologies technologies that can radically change medicine? And when it comes to using all of this data in making medical decisions, where are the limits?

THE PATIENT AS INNOVATOR

Technology is changing the patient-provider relationship as never before—starting with the obvious: Consumers now have access to—and, increasingly, control over their own healthcare data. Ubiquitous medical information and research studies on the web, engaged online communities, smartphone apps, and even at-home diagnostics, have given rise to a new breed of empowered healthcare consumers. And these patients are impatient: prodding white-coats for faster, better answers—or, sometimes, seeking them on their own. To be sure, bad information and the wrong guidance are putting some lives at risk. Other patients are changing the world.

A CONVERSATION WITH SEAN PARKER: LESSONS FROM A MASTER OF DISRUPTION

How can we use the technology we have right now to change healthcare for the better—to transform a bureaucratic, hidebound, risk-averse, and largely closed system into one that’s responsive to the consumers who are paying for it? Who else to answer that question but Sean Parker, the man who understands creative disruption better than anyone. Setting his sights on hacking the toughest challenge of all—cancer—the co-founder of Napster, founding president of Facebook, and president of the Parker Foundation has already accomplished something miraculous in a few years’ time: getting the nation’s top cancer immunology experts to work together toward a common goal. We talk with Parker about what he’s learned along the journey—and where we should go from here.
