The insightful conversation will be followed by a leading industry panel drawn from diverse stakeholder groups.

Interactive peer roundtable discussions will allow attendees to share industry lessons learned and recommend actionable strategies.

The program concludes with table ‘calls to action’ and Q&A. Non-attributable recommendations will be recorded and shared post-event.
