Ukrainian CEOs are going to extraordinary measures to keep their companies viable and their employees safe, not to mention meeting critical and constantly changing needs of the Ukrainian people. Hear from 5 CEOs representing Pharma, Energy and Investment about their responses, and those of other corporations, and learn about the critical roles that partnerships and collaboration with US and other non-Ukrainian companies can play in supporting their efforts.

This webinar is free but we strongly encourage you to make a contribution to this fund set up by the Ukraine CEOs Club which is using the money aimed at economic development of the country and humanitarian needs. You will also have the opportunity to connect with Ukrainian leaders if you think you or your organization can support or mentor their efforts in some way.
