About this event

This is a monthly series of discussions with prominent Chief People Officers. Through an ongoing series of discussions with top people leaders, we will illustrate the vital strategic nature of the role the CPO plays as one of the most critical C-Suite and Board engaged leaders of the organization. Each year, this series culminates in a building report of the lessons learned and the predictions we see for the future. The conversations are designed to bring out insights based on the unique backgrounds of each CPO, as well as shape a common framework for the strategic positioning of the CPO in the organization based on specific questions on strategy that will be asked of each CPO.

This month will feature Donna Morris Executive Vice President and Chief People Officer at Walmart.
