Special Policy Watch: Leadership in Challenging Time with John Rogers
The global public health crisis unleashed by the COVID-19 pandemic, the economic crisis and challenges that have followed and the calls for social justice that have dramatically changed our public consciousness demand extraordinary leadership from the business community. CED’s Leadership in Challenging Times series interviews our country’s top business leaders about the unprecedented challenges facing our nation and how they are helping chart a path forward for their companies, communities, and the nation at-large.
The CEO discussion series features the six outstanding business leaders who are the recipients of CED's annual Distinguished Leadership Awards, along with other outstanding business leaders. In this series, they share their experiences and insights as part of CED’s efforts to help our nation navigate crises and develop reasoned solutions.
The discussion series pays tribute to the legacy of CED’s founders, America’s leading CEOs who, during WWII, heeded the call to public service to guide the transition from a wartime to a prosperous peacetime economy. The Committee for Economic Development helped shape the Marshall Plan that rebuilt Europe after WWII as well as the Jobs Act of 1946 which set forth workplace reforms. That tradition continues today with our efforts to shape public policy that impacts our workplaces, communities and government and will help to make capitalism sustainable for generations by providing prosperity and equal opportunity for all Americans.
