Renewed conflict, environmental degradation, deepening inequality – the complexity and interconnectedness of today’s crises, unfolding in a media landscape rife with mis- and disinformation, require new forms of leadership. Executives from a diversity of sectors (multilateral, government, philanthropy, corporate) will share their views on the challenges we face and the means to overcome them. How do we move beyond platitudes to collective action?

By convening inspirational and effective leaders who have made their respective mark within their sectors and beyond, this event examines the skills and mindsets necessary to tackle our toughest global challenges.

The discussion explores the unique challenges leaders face in navigating the poly-crisis today. How can they reframe the debate on migration, so it’s seen as an opportunity and not just a challenge? And what responsibility do business leaders have in rebuilding citizen trust?

This event took place in Davos, on the margins of the World Economic Forum (WEF) Annual Meeting.
