Throughout a turbulent 2020, many business leaders are leaning on their peers. We brainstorm on how we can support our employees, help heal our communities, and move our organizations forward as we grapple with big challenges and enormous change. These peer connections build optimism, too, since conversation provides the path to progress.
At Workday, we put our heads together this summer to see how we could help facilitate important conversations among business leaders both across and beyond our customer community. The result is a global digital event this fall that I’m very excited to share more about, Conversations for a Changing World.
During this event, we’ll bring together global leaders and changemakers to share ideas and inspiration, so we can pour even more of our collective energy into driving the kind of change that will lead us into a brighter future.
We’ll hear diverse perspectives from a number of speakers, including:
We’re committed to hosting an event where speakers and participants take on some of the most difficult challenges we face in both business and society.
And, with our customers being the most inspirational people we know, we’re delighted to share that C-level executives of finance, human resources, information technology, and diversity and inclusion will be leading conversations during the event. We’ll also hear from Workday’s leadership team, including our Co-CEOs Aneel Bhusri and Chano Fernandez, and experts within our partner ecosystem.
What will we talk about? We’re committed to hosting an event where speakers and participants take on some of the most difficult challenges we currently face in both business and society. Here are the topics we’ll cover, featuring executives from the following companies:
The global broadcast of Conversations for a Changing World will start at 8:00 a.m. PT/16:00 BST on Oct. 20, with the option for our Asia-Pacific attendees to join us for a second broadcast on Oct. 21 at 10:00 a.m. SGT. Most of the content from the event will be available on-demand through Oct. 31.
The event is scheduled to run three hours, and you can choose which conversations to join depending on your areas of interest. And we hope you won't just watch, but will join in the conversation through our live chat and polling features. What’s more, we see this event as just the beginning of the conversations we can help facilitate for C-level executives (including CFOs, CHROS, and CIOs), and we’ll be sharing more on our plans to help them stay connected in the months that follow.
I’m incredibly grateful for our Workmates, customers, partners, and speakers who’ve embraced the opportunity to create this unique event to inspire collective action for lasting change. We hope you’ll join us for Conversations for a Changing World, where we can start to work together toward a better future for all.
