The Milken Institute Announces Dynamic Roster of Speakers and Program Agenda for its 2023 Global Conference

The four-day event centers around the theme: “Advancing a Thriving World”

Today, the Milken Institute announced the initial program agenda and speaker lineup for its upcoming 2023 Global Conference, April 30 – May 3, held at The Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles, CA. The four-day event will focus on the theme: “Advancing a Thriving World.”

Conference panels will dive into pressing conversations around domestic and global hot-button topics, such as growth in disruptive technology, global energy markets, digital asset regulation, supply chain disruption, biomedical innovation, geopolitics and cybersecurity, artificial intelligence, corporate philanthropy, the future of work, healthcare policy, impact investing, and so much more.

“As we move away from the pandemic and pivot forward, it’s clear that large portions of the global community do not feel they are thriving,” said Richard Ditizio, CEO of the Milken Institute. “We are tasking our attending leaders from government, industry, medicine, and the philanthropic community to bring their best thinking toward fixing that—to see advancing as an action verb. The willingness of our global constituents to engage so earnestly across a spectrum of issues fuels optimism about the future we can create.”
