Building on the phenomenal success of our annual sister event in London, Make a Difference Digital Summit US will take place in New York on October 15th, 2020. 

MAD World Summit London is now the world’s largest conference and exhibition for workplace culture, mental health and wellbeing. Make A Difference Digital Summit US aims to replicate this success and have even greater impact with employers in North America.

Getting to the heart of the unprecedented challenges our workplaces are facing with the coronavirus pandemic in 2020, we’ll bring together leading employers and experts to equip attendees with insights and solutions to meet fast-evolving needs of the modern organization.

The core focuses will be on stigma, prevention, addressing access to mental healthcare, effective leadership through change and creating diverse, inclusive cultures that drive performance, whilst looking after human capital.

“The leading organizations of tomorrow are going to be those who invest in creating cultures that support the mental health and wellbeing of employees; those employers who understand the value of human capital, and the value of caring for their greatest asset.”
