The 20th Annual
Milken Institute Global Conference
“Building Meaningful Lives”
April 30 – May 3, 2017 | Los Angeles
For the event’s 20th Anniversary, the digital disruption topic takes center stage as they examine how businesses, individuals and society can adjust to – and thrive as a result of – technological disruption. It is not news that technological advances have impacted or upended nearly every facet of our lives – the way business is conducted, medicine is discovered and delivered, politics are waged, capital flows are managed, relationships are forged, and how well and long our lives are lived. Now we must move beyond understanding the challenges to explore how we can – and, in fact must – respond to build meaning and well-being for everyone that technology disrupts.
