2020 Global Summit: Beyond the Horizon

The Pacific Council’s Global Summit: Beyond the Horizon is a weeklong virtual series. The Summit will feature leading decisionmakers in conversation as they explore the range of challenges facing the United States in this moment—from our national reckoning over racial injustice to the global pandemic—and discuss what the future might hold. In keeping with the Pacific Council’s mission, the Summit will place particular emphasis on assessing Los Angeles and California’s global leadership role going forward.

Throughout the week, we will convene keynote conversations and breakout sessions on topics including the importance of confronting historic inequities, the future of the United States economy, how to restore America’s relationships and global competitiveness, and more.
