Preliminary Agenda & Plenary Session Start Times

The theme of this year's summit is "Rebuilding for All" and will focus on sustainable growth, financial security and data for good initiatives. As the global pandemic has both accelerated the shift to a digital economy and exacerbated inequality, it has never been more important to understand how constantly shifting demographics, circumstances, and technologies affect the growth, security, and prosperity of communities all over the world.

The 2021 summit builds on the success of the inaugural 2019 Global Inclusive Growth Summit, which brought together 500 purpose-driven leaders to share inspiring ideas and solutions and galvanized action to create a more inclusive economy. Four philanthropic organizations including Mastercard committed more than $72 million in funding to advance equitable and sustainable economic growth. This year, as part of the Clinton Foundation's efforts to accelerate an inclusive economic recovery, the Clinton Global Initiative is partnering with Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth and Aspen Institute to advance more projects supporting widespread economic growth.
