The 2020 Fortune CEO Initiative Annual meeting will be held on October 26, in San Francisco.

Fortune is closely following the public health emergency related to the coronavirus outbreak and we are continuously following updates from the World Health Organization, CDC, and other health agencies.

As we continue to monitor the situation, we will adapt our plans according to developments and advice we receive. We are committed to prioritizing the welfare of our speakers, sponsors, delegates and staff at all our conferences. Should any conference plans change we will notify all participants directly.

Business as a Platform for Change

The FORTUNE CEO Initiative is a forum for corporate leaders who are committed to addressing major social problems as part of their core business strategies. The Initiative grew out of an historic meeting of 100 CEOs with Pope Francis at the Vatican in December 2016, and is based on a belief that infusing broader purpose into corporate strategies has become increasingly important in attracting and motivating talent, deepening bonds with consumers, steadying corporate reputation in an era of declining trust, and preserving a well-functioning society in a time of political tumult.

Through annual gatherings and participation in action work streams, CEO Initiative members exchange best practices and leadership techniques for addressing key issues, and work to identify opportunities for collective action. Participation is by invitation only, and benefits of membership in the CEO Initiative will extend beyond the annual meeting. Click here to review the membership benefits.
