Founded in 1916 by a group of CEOs concerned about the impact of workplace issues on business, The Conference Board was originally located in Boston and moved to New York City four years later. We’ve operated at the intersection of business and society ever since.
In Latin America, The Conference Board established a joint venture in Mexico in 1995 and produces that country’s Leading Economic Index. Over a dozen Councils – ranging from the Human Resources Council – Mexico to the Customer Experience and Globalization Leadership Councils – help senior executives from member companies in Latin America to share best practices and develop approaches to the most challenging issues of the day. In addition, The Conference Board Review magazine regularly features articles of interest to Latin American business executives.
