    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    By 2035, for the first time in this nation’s history, there will be more senior citizens than children. What changes do we need to make as our workforce becomes more intergenerationally diverse than at any point in time? At this Conversation, we’ll explore the challenges of work today, and hear from the innovative individuals, companies, and governments that are proactively tackling them.
