2013 Global Conference Play

The Milken Institute's annual Global Conference brings together some of the world's leading thinkers for an intensive, insightful week that focuses on finding solutions to some of our toughest challenges.

These high-powered CEOs, investors, innovators, policymakers, philanthropists, educators and scientists exchange ideas and challenge each other's thinking in a sweeping and ambitious program that focuses on a wide range of topics -- from financial markets, economic development, energy, and global health to public policy, education, media and technology.

When we mobilize the right people around powerful ideas, there's no limit to the progress we can achieve. Where others see problems, we seek solutions. Join us April 28-May 1, 2013, in Los Angeles.

Milken Institute Restoring California's Promise Play

A generation ago, California was synonymous with optimism and opportunity. But today the state is swamped with urgent challenges, from high unemployment to a struggling education system.

Instead of pulling together with decisive action, Sacramento seems paralyzed by partisan gridlock. But California can't wait. We need answers — and action — now.

This project aims to jumpstart a constructive dialogue, minus the finger-pointing and bickering that have served us so poorly in the past.

Dozens of prominent Californians are sitting down before our video cameras to offer concrete ideas for getting the state back on track. Now you can add your own voice to this urgent conversation.

It'll take innovative ideas to shake up the status quo. If you care deeply about California's quality of life, weigh in with your suggestions below.
