Later in the day, Jacobs Chair and CEO Steve Demetriou will offer a keynote, “Without Change, There Is No Change: Empowerment, Transparency, Action,” then join a panel with Thear Suzuki, global client service partner at EY; and Bill Munck, managing partner with Munck Wilson Mandala, on “Change Starts at the Top: Lessons from the C-Suite.”

Also on tap for the day are presentations on “The Value of Human Connection,” “Paving Your Own Path and Discovering Your Value,” “Seek Progress Over Perfection,” and “Knowing Your Value(s): “To Thine Own Self Be True.”

The online platform for the virtual event also allows for three targeted networking sessions and a breakout session over lunch.
