About The Conference

In an era characterized by global conflict, leadership malpractice, educational challenges, ideological polarization, product quality failures, and organizational missteps this conference is focused on creating an innovative space for constructive dialog about creating amazing future possibilities.  It is designed for problem solving scholars that are interested in using their voice to make a significant difference in their communities, organizations, academic fields, and the lives of others.  Participants are welcomed from a variety of disciplines including Business, Leadership, Education, Informatics/Big Data, Psychology, Technology, Counseling, Public Health, Health Systems Management, Criminology, Criminal Justice, Quality Management, Public Policy, Public Administration, Environmental Science, and etc.  The plethora of topics signify that today’s complex global problems can’t be solved by scholars isolating themselves in narrow solos of their own disciplines.
