Founded in 1916 by a group of CEOs concerned about the impact of workplace issues on business, The Conference Board was originally located in Boston and moved to New York City four years later. We’ve operated at the intersection of business and society ever since; an objective, independent source of economic and business knowledge with one agenda: to help our member companies understand and deal with the most critical issues of our time.

Access a universe of actionable insights, peer relationships, and original programs that develop leaders at every level in their career track.
