HOPE Global Forums | 2019 Annual Meeting

Hope Global Forums

Join UFSC members at the Operation HOPE Global Forum (HGF19) at the Hyatt Regency in Atlanta, Georgia,  May 29-31, 2019.  HGF19 is the largest gathering in the world, which focuses on the underserved.  This year’s theme is “A Pathway to Prosperity: Building an Inclusive Economy.”  Global Prosperity can only be achieved through an economy that provides equity and opportunity for everyone. Creating a stronger and more sustainable economic model, one where rising prosperity benefits everyone, requires not only leadership from government, but the private sector as well.  A better future is possible one that features a free exchange of ideas, uses the next wave of technology to improve society, nurtures innovation and produces growth – not stagnation – with equity.  

Some of the key aspects of this year’s HGF19 are as follows:
