We are in the midst of the greatest wealth transfer in human history: $60 trillion will be inherited over the next 55 years.

They are idealistic, altruistic generations who are aligning their investments to their values and infusing creativity into their philanthropy. A panel of influential, young global citizens will detail how they are revolutionizing the philanthropic landscape—and changing commercial business along the way.
