Can the most important bilateral relationship of this century be retrieved? What explains the continuing well of positive feeling toward America among ordinary Chinese people? Can people-to-people engagement help us ride out the current downturn and rebuild trust? These are the questions to be tackled in this webinar presentation cosponsored by the Yale Club of Shenzhen and the Yale Center Beijing. Yale people — backed by a unique history of two centuries of engagement with Chinese people — take a long view as they continue to build bridges based on practical relationships. David Youtz, president of the Yale-China Association, together with friends in China, will offer a window into China in 2020 through Yale exchanges and collaborations, acts of generosity through the pandemic, and the little-known history that has created this positive platform on which lives can be changed and trust rebuilt. false

      Imperatives of Leadership for Business and Society with Spotlight speaker Emma Sky

      Corporations can embrace global citizenship just as individuals do, but while this can lead to great positive impact, it also comes with its own challenges. How do businesses continue to drive innovation and global economic growth while preserving the climate, protecting human rights, and ensuring that the most vulnerable are not left behind?

      This panel will bring together business and economics leaders to discuss how corporations are incorporating global citizenship into their strategy and highlight global challenges where the business community can and should play a greater role in ensuring a sustainable future.

      Immediately following the panel, Emma Sky will deliver closing remarks and answer questions. Emma Sky is director of Yale's Maurice R. Greenberg World Fellows Program and a Senior Fellow at the Jackson Institute, where she teaches Middle East politics.
