As economic inequality has become a growing challenge around the world, many are turning to industry leaders to help address this issue. The Conference Board’s seminar on Economic Inequality was the first of its kind to discuss current business response, rationale for business participation, and the attitudes of the American public. 
Subject matter experts will reveal how the American public views business in the context of the economic inequality challenge, providing a case for industry involvement. Viewers will also be provided with insight into what the new administration and Congress might do to address some of the key economic inequality issues.

Who Should Attend:
Business network professionals engaged in the economic inequality debate and those who seek more information as to changes that could affect their company.
