TRANSFORMING GLOBAL HEALTH CARE
Look closely at the prominent mergers in the health care industry of late—pharmacy benefits manager Express Scripts to insurer Cigna; insurer Aetna to drugstore chain CVS. What’s driving this frenzy of health care-related deal making? One word: data. More specifically, your data: your health history, how you sleep, what you put in your body, and what comes out. How can data, AI and other digital transformations of the health sector help find new cost efficiencies, improve health care services and medicine, and reverse the soaring costs of health care worldwide?

ADVANCING WOMEN IN GLOBAL BUSINESS
Gender inequality in the workplace is real. Statistics around the gender pay gap and the lack of women in leadership roles have made headlines for years. Yet, the problem persists: women continue to earn a fraction of what their male counterparts take home, fewer than 5% of Fortune 500 companies have a female CEO, and women make up just 22% of S&P 500 boards. While advances have been made, the goal of achieving true parity is still far off. What barriers must businesses dismantle to truly empower and advance working women in the 21st century? A frank conversation about the slow and steady march toward gender equity and what it will take to see real change in businesses today.
