Control of policymaking institutions in Washington is shifting as major tensions and crises — i.e. the pandemic, a shaky economy, and social conflict — raise the stakes for the nation.

Join this webcast as we assess the current environment and present nonpartisan, sound, business-driven ideas for achieving economic growth for all Americans, as well as CED’s substantive recommendations to the new President and Congress.

By attending this webcast viewers will be able to: 

  • Understand the current challenges facing public policy
  • Explore how business leaders could impact policies related to restructuring the health care system; strengthening US education and workforce training; achieving fiscal soundness after the pandemic; and rebuilding US infrastructure and technology
  • Learn ways that US business can help restore prosperity for all Americans and re-establish confidence and trust in our institutions that have diminished due to recent events

Who Should Attend: Business leaders and those involved in political strategy and policy making
