Is Globalization Dead? Or Alive but Evolving?

Stories covering the “end of globalization” have surged after a decade of destabilizing worldwide events. Yet, the world trade volume index hit a new all-time high in 2022, and digital globalization is accelerating, with global data flows growing faster than the volume of traditional trade. As the world changes, topics like onshoring, supply chain diversification, digital transformation, regionalization, and security are top of mind for international business leaders. Leaders must continue to adapt to the rapidly changing nature of global business and partnerships in this age of acceleration. How can companies leverage globalization’s failures and reorient for sustainable growth? Our expert panel will share insights and examples to help business leaders assess, prepare, and act in today’s rapidly changing global business landscape. The panel will include:

Drew Greenblatt
President of Marline Steel Wire Products

Brooke Story
President of BD Integrated Diagnostic Solutions

Liz Hempel
Partner at McKinsey and Company

The panel discussion will be from 3:00 to 4:30 p.m., in person and live streamed. It will be followed by a one-hour networking reception.
