Charting a New Course

Charting a New Course

The 2021 Milken Institute Global Conference convened experts and leaders to address urgent global challenges and pinpoint effective solutions. The event saw individuals with the capital, power, and influence to change the world and connect with the innovators reinventing health, finance, technology, philanthropy, and media. The 24th annual Global Conference centered on the theme, “Charting a New Course.” The impact of social crisis, economic dislocation, and global pandemic called on us to reflect on how we live, what we believe, and what matters most. This conference focused on how the disruptions of the recent past can be reframed for a thriving future. And now we can take the lessons learned from the event and start to rebuild meaningful, healthy, and prosperous lives for all.
