SAVING CAPITALISM FROM ITSELF

Former IMF chief economist and head of India’s central bank Raghuram Rajan argues that capitalism needs both top-down reforms and bottom-up policies to maintain trust in a market economy. It also needs populism. As the social and economic consequences of globalization become ever so apparent, how can we strike a balance between the three powerful forces have emerged–the state, markets, and our own communities–in order to ensure the capitalist systems works for everyone?
Raghuram Rajan, Professor of Finance, University of Chicago Booth School of Business; Author, The Third Pillar: How Markets and the State Leave the Community Behind

EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT: DEVELOPING A NEW CONTRACT BETWEEN EMPLOYEES AND EMPLOYERS
Whether it’s baby boomers saving for retirement, Gen Zers paying off student loans, or millennials saving to buy a home, today’s generationally diverse workforce is grappling with a vast spectrum of lifestyle and financial priorities. How can businesses reimagine employee compensation packages with innovative offerings to retain talent and create benefits that respond to societal changes? With the explosion of the “gig economy,” how can companies better engage not only with their multigenerational workforce but also with their nontraditional employees (think: part-time, remote workers, returning retirees, contractors)? We’ll also explore the different ways employers can bring their workers into the decision-making process to evoke more transparency and trust within their organization.

DELIVERING ECONOMIC INCLUSION AND INVESTING IN EMPLOYEE FINANCIAL HEALTH
Hosted by Allstate
Roughly three billion of the world’s population is almost completely left off the economic grid. How can we leverage technology to deliver financial products that reduce inequality, build a sustainable path for broader and global economic inclusion, and make sure the next generation isn’t left behind? What steps can we take to deliver community investment, capital for lower-income groups and female entrepreneurs? What role can credit-building schemes and payday loans play in helping lift financial burdens and promote stability for families in need? As businesses look outward to address these global challenges, we’ll also examine why they need to look inward to help their own employees combat the rising tide of financial stress. How can companies invest in the well-being of their workers to improve their financial education, give them relevant investment tools, and make sure they have the ability to use these tools to actually better their lives?

Co-chairs:
Penny Pennington, Managing Partner, Edward Jones
Tom Wilson, Chairman and CEO, The Allstate Corporation

TECHNOLOGY FOR GOOD: REDUCING BIAS AND BUILDING MORE INCLUSIVE PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
Hosted by Genpact
How can we reduce the conscious and unconscious biases in tech? Is enough being done to address these biases, and why is there such a struggle to eliminate algorithmic ones? How can A.I. and machine learning enhance employees’ skills and experience and create a competitive edge? How can we work to find hidden talent within our workforces that will help solve some of the challenges we face in building more inclusive services and products? We’ll also discuss strategies to build inclusive products and services—for profit, people, and planet—and what’s at stake if we don’t.

Co-chairs:
Rana el Kaliouby, Co-founder and CEO, Affectiva

WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT: COMMITTING TO OUR YOUTH
Hosted by EY
Amid growing concerns over the skills gap, how can nonprofits, community organizations, and educational institutions bring more underserved youth into the pipeline for secure, well-paying jobs? And what should business leaders do to improve “work-based learning” opportunities? How can businesses partner with community colleges, trade schools, and technical schools to invest in long-term workforce development? Should companies reinvent the “internship” or “apprenticeship”?

BUILDING A (RESPONSIBLE) FUTURE WITH A.I.
