2020 Meeting Overview

This year, the Fortune CEO Initiative will convene in San Francisco to shape specific steps business can take to improve the relationship between business and society. Last year’s revised statement of corporate purpose by the Business Roundtable marked a tipping point in this conversation; yet questions remain about how to implement the new principles, and how to measure results.

This event builds on efforts that began at the Fortune Global Forum at the Vatican in December 2016. We will focus on a series of issues highlighted in the UN Sustainable Development Goals. CEO initiative members will meet on Monday, October 26, to deliberate on contributions the private sector can make to achieving those goals.

WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT

At the CEO Initiative Annual Meeting participants will join a day of intense exploration of the current and most effective practices corporations are pursuing to address issues such as economic inclusion, employee health and well-being, planet-first efforts, and workforce development.
