WE LIVE IN A WORLD OF CONTRASTS with unprecedented prosperity and opportunity but with far too many of the world's citizens deeply affected by persistent poverty, conflict and unfulfilled human potential.
On November 6, 2003, over 400 people from around the world came together for an evening of strategic and substantive discussion about how to bridge social and economic divides.
University for a Night participants also honored a man whose life exemplifies such bridge building: David Rockefeller.
|6:00pm || ||Plenary Dialogue with Key Leaders from around the World|
Five speakers set the stage by challenging the 400 University for a Night participants -- philanthropists
and leaders from business, government and civil society -- with brief remarks from their respective fields.
