These innovative leaders, who are at the center of the most powerful brands and retailers, will discuss the burning topics the industry is facing in a fast-changing world, including inflationary pressures, which show no signs of abating. Execs will open up about the road ahead as recession fears mount.

Another urgent topic across the business is diversity and inclusion, and trailblazing leaders will discuss how they are igniting change inside their companies and across their communities.
