Webinar Series: The World Has Changed
Webinar Topic: Coronavirus Broke the World: How Can We Build Back Better
Webinar Date: November 21, 2020
The COVID-19 pandemic will fundamentally transform every aspect of our lives on the personal, professional, national, and global levels. The crisis has made processes that might otherwise have unfolded over decades arrive all at once. Our future has come crashing into our present. As much as many of us are hoping our previous world will snap back after this crisis abates, that will not be the case. But while it is appropriate to mourn what we have lost and the tragedy of this moment, the foundations for our new lives, companies, and world are today being laid…and India may hold the key to the world’s salvation.
