2020 SIEPR Economic Summit
The impact of 5G. A bank alleviating poverty. Financial literacy for a new generation. National security heightened and trade limited.
This year’s SIEPR Economic Summit will examine the economic impacts of these issues, among others, and expose how they’re playing out in government agencies and businesses. Join us on Friday, March 13, 2020, for panels and keynotes featuring top scholars, business leaders and prominent policymakers.
Thank you to our Corporate Sponsors: Dodge & Cox, Facebook and Heidrick & Struggles.
