Lord Mark Malloch-Brown, Chairman of SGO, will join Christine Lagarde, managing Director of the International Monetary Fund; Sri Mulyani Indrawati, managing Director and Chief Operating Officer of the World Bank; and Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State to discuss global inequality.
As Chairman of SGO, and having worked as former deputy secretary general and chief of staff for the United Nation, Malloch-Brown has a very clear idea of both the challenges and opportunities that technology brings to this all-important topic. “When changes in technology and the impact of global markets risk skewing inequality even further, the challenge to policy makers is to contain this trend which so directly feeds poverty, forced migration, insecurity and conflict.”
Malloch-Brown’s participation will take place on January 31 at Wellesley College’s Madeleine Korbel Albright Institute for Global Affairs. This event will serve as preamble for a weekend-long symposium that will gather other scholars, policy makers and government officials to discuss global inequality in areas such as public health and hunger.
