2023 World Leadership Conference

What’s Going On?

Detroit, Michigan, USA
October 2023

Our Detroit conference—held in the birthplace of Motown and the only American city to be designated a UNESCO City of Design—was the perfect venue to explore solutions to some of the most pressing challenges facing global leaders today. More than 700 leaders from 22 countries gathered to reflect on how creativity and culture shape our economy and our world. We tackled such topics as artificial intelligence and what it means for the future of humanity; the transformation of transportation and its implications for the climate; and how our environment shapes our brains and bodies even before birth.

We welcomed Hall of Fame Honorees Dr. Ngozi Okonjo-Iweala, Director-General of the World Trade Organization, and Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician and public health advocate whose research exposed the Flint water crisis.
