7 Themes for 2021
A NEW URGENCY
2020 has amplified issues like racial injustice, poverty, nationalism, and the climate crisis amidst a global pandemic. The future depends on the business, non-profit, government, science, and technology communities all working together. What advancements are needed to create immediate and lasting progress?
CHALLENGING TECH’S PATH FORWARD
If we are to achieve real change as a society, then the many ways in which the tech industry impacts our lives must be leveraged as a positive force. To build a better tomorrow, what lessons can an industry integral to our existence learn from its current failings?
CULTURAL RESILIENCE IN THE ARTS
Great art often thrives in times of turmoil and chaos. How will the eruption of creativity we are currently seeing across music, film, experiential, written, and visual arts impact our culture for the next decade and beyond?
THE REBIRTH OF BUSINESS

CONNECTION IN DISCONNECTION
We’re living lives we never could have imagined as we head into our own brave new world. The consequences of social isolation have been brewing for years.
