Corporate Leadership Breakfast

Karen Weigert, Nonresident Senior Fellow, Global Cities; Ivo H. Daalder, President, Chicago Council on Global Affairs

CEOs, heads of office, and other select C-suite executives from member companies are invited to participate in quarterly meetings cohosted by Council president Ivo H. Daalder and board chairman Glenn Tilton.

These members-only meetings provide an opportunity for business leaders to participate in timely, business-relevant global policy discussions and hear directly from the Council’s bench of experts. They also provide a platform to showcase executive leadership in a room of peers, customers, service providers, and clients.

A few weeks ago, the Trump administration reported that Russian government hackers had penetrated some of our nation’s most critical infrastructure, including the electric grid. This was but the latest example of the growing threat to our cyber security. The impact is especially large in our nation’s cities, which are most dependent on secure cyber networks.

Please join us on May 22 to discuss this important topic with your fellow corporate member executives and Council expert on global cities, Karen Weigert. Weigert will offer her insights on cyber threats, energy and urban infrastructure. You bring a critical perspective to this conversation and we look forward to underscoring the role of the private sector in combating this growing threat to cities worldwide.

To learn more about these quarterly meetings and other benefits of corporate membership, please contact Andrea Montoya.
