Tomorrow, we’re kicking off the BSR Conference 2017 in Huntington Beach, California. Over the next three days, we’ll hear compelling stories from changemakers at companies, foundations, governments, and other organizations who are taking the lead and embracing the need to redefine sustainable business for an era of profound change and political and economic volatility.
It all starts tomorrow evening with opening remarks from BSR President and CEO Aron Cramer, followed by a keynote speech from Former U.S. Vice President Al Gore. On Wednesday, we’ll hear from National Geographic Photographer Annie Griffiths and Microsoft’s Brad Smith, among many others. And Thursday we’ll feature a panel on Corporations and the Challenge of the Global Refugee Crisis, featuring TripAdvisor’s Stephen Kaufer, Mercy Corps’ Neal Keny-Guyer, and Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth’s Shamina Singh, as well as a presentation from Morgan Stanley’s Audrey Choi. We’ll close the Conference with a keynote address from Planned Parenthood’s Cecile Richards.
