Forbes announced its robust lineup of 2021 tentpole events, each consisting of thoughtfully curated premium content and unique experiences for Forbes’ coveted audiences, from C-suite executives to small-business leaders, entrepreneurs and business decision-makers. Designed to help drive systemic change in business, culture and society, the events reflect Forbes’ mission of championing the entrepreneurs and leaders who are helping the world build back in 2021 and beyond, with themes centered around uncovering innovative solutions in healthcare, advancing opportunities for women and BIPOC, determining how tech will play a role in the future of work and discovering the most impactful ways philanthropists can create true equality.

Featured tentpole events will focus on small business, blockchain, future of food, healthcare, philanthropy, CIOs, CMOs, CEOs, Under 30, Over 50, and more. For each event, diversity, equity and inclusion will be threaded throughout and reflect Forbes’ proprietary 2021 CxO Growth Survey that reveals how 93 percent of C-suite executives said their organization has prioritized diversity, equity and inclusion efforts, but only 57 percent have established a clear recruitment strategy to attract more diverse talent.

Over the last year, ForbesLive pivoted to virtual, creating enduring, interactive experiences that are now a core component of Forbes’ business strategy for driving engagement with the communities that matter most. In the second half of 2020, Forbes held 66 events, engaging over 50,000 people from 188 countries worldwide.

“Last year we proved there was potential and interest in virtual and hybrid events and we demonstrated there was a way to continue bringing the world’s most innovative leaders and disrupters together to find solutions for today’s most pressing issues,” said Sherry Phillips, Senior Vice President of ForbesLIVE. “We are committed to uniting people worldwide while creating communities at scale and driving important conversations that provide a playbook for a world looking to build back with equity at its core.”
