The first-ever Wharton Global Forum in New York was a huge success! More than 700 attendees enjoyed an intellectually stimulating and horizon-expanding event in New York City. One of the hallmarks of any Wharton Global Forum is the auspicious nature of the conversations. In New York, though the keynotes and fireside chats were long-planned, speakers seized the moment and took on the timeliest issues and headlines in business, geopolitics, and economics. Some of the key takeaways included:
- panelists holding a wide-ranging discussion on diversity that explored the advances and areas in need of improvement throughout corporate culture
- a lively discussion that explored the ups and downs of how technology is disrupting the fundamentals of information access and decision making
- and, a masterclass on blockchain and cryptocurrency.
