As a nonpartisan, nonprofit entity operating in the public interest since 1916, The Conference Board offers a rich portfolio focused on the greater good. Our investments include our economic indicators, reports, meetings, webcasts, and Councils, and our overall work as a member-driven think tank that delivers trusted insights for what’s ahead. We deliver these insights to our member organizations and the broader business community in such areas as sustainability, corporate philanthropy, social responsibility, education, diversity and inclusion, and sustainable capitalism. Our membership includes over 1,200 companies in both the established and emerging markets of the world. Our global community of leadership experts, which includes representatives from The Conference Board and a number of prominent companies, works to ensure our members receive the practical knowledge they need to improve their performance and better serve society.


Our purpose is simple: to help leaders navigate the biggest issues impacting business and better serve society. During the last 100+ years, we have expanded our programs to meet, or even anticipate, the needs of a rapidly changing and increasingly globalized business environment. By doing so, we have helped our members find better solutions for their individual needs and better serve the societies in which they operate.
