The 19th Annual Milken Institute Global Conference In Beverly Hills Happening

Retired Adm. Michael Mullen, a former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, a former commander of NATO forces, and former Vice President Al Gore will be among the participants today in the 19th annual Milken Institute Global Conference in Beverly Hills.

More than 3,500 people from 55 nations and 45 states are set to attend the conference, which features major investors, CEOs, senior government officials, scientists, educators and philanthropists participating in 200 sessions with the overarching theme exploring “The Future of Humankind,” organizers said.

“Our Global Conference builds relationships that turn powerful ideas into transformative action, especially in our core areas of access to capital, improving health care and spurring job creation,” said institute President and CEO Mike Klowden.

“Our ability to bridge the worlds of business, finance, health, education and policy has never been more in demand.”

Gore, now the chairman of the independent, private investment management partnership Generation Investment Management, will speak on investing in the sustainable economy and be part of a luncheon panel discussion on the future of humanity.

Other panelists include Mullen, now a senior adviser for the global asset management firm Providence Equity Partners, and Eric Schmidt, the executive chairman of Alphabet, a collection of companies that includes Google, of which he was the CEO from 2001 to 2011.

Clark, now the chairman and CEO of the international consulting firm Wesley K. Clark & Associates, will be part of a panel discussion titled “Global Risk: Challenges for the Next President.”

Other panelists include Sen. Bob Corker, R-Tennessee, the chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, and former South Bay Rep. Jane Harmon, now the director, president and CEO of the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars.

Today’s other panels include “Conversations with Congress,” with Corker, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Bakersfield; and Sen. Mark Warner, D-Virginia; and “Governors Address Challenges Facing States” with Govs. John Hickenlooper, D-Colorado; Terry McAuliffe, D-Virginia; Rick Scott, R- Florida; and Scott Walker, R-Wisconsin.

The conference continues through Wednesday.
