EY - Mark Weinberger “EY’s perspectives on topics such as inclusive capitalism, business transformation, women as an economic driver, and diversity and inclusiveness put us at the center of the debate at WEF. The exchange is invigorating – and the visibility is good for business. But what I value most is the opportunity to hear directly from business leaders, government officials, and experts across a range of fields about their strategic concerns, and to be there to help them ask the tough questions that affect us all.”
