March 28, 2022

The Russia-Ukraine conflict has shown powerful solidarity among CEOs globally. This movement of CEOs creating a vision for a better world gained significant momentum over the past two years with Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) and other drivers of social and global importance. 

On April 21, 2022, The CEO Transformative Summit will virtually bring together CEOs from all over the world to collaborate on how CEOs lead the change of elevating business, the economy, and society. The Summit promises to be the seminal convening of CEOs brainstorming together to collectively lead the charge of elevating business, the economy, and the community.

The Summit, titled Intention & Purpose: CEOs Creating a New World Ecosystem, features three powerful keynote speakers followed by concurrent workgroups composed of four CEOs to exchange ideas and brainstorm on how to grow and face current challenges for their industry and society. AFN’s CEO, Matt Sitter, will be leading one of the workgroups discussing CEO Global Citizenship.
