The Conference Board is a global, independent business membership and research association working in the public interest. Our agenda is simple: to help leaders navigate the biggest issues impacting business and better serve society. We believe in innovative approaches that make you think- and act- differently. And everything we do reflects the input of our members and their real-world challenges.
We do this by delivering business insights. We connect senior executives across industries and geographies to share ideas, and our experts create fact-based research and consensus-driven policy statements to help leaders address their most important business issues.
Because we are independent, non-partisan, and non-profit our work is trusted. If you learned it at The Conference Board you can count on it.
