Conference And Charity Dinner in NYC

We invite you to a conference and a charity dinner that will take place at the Harvard Club in New York City on September 17, 2022.

The event aims to bring the greatest minds and key political figures together to discuss the implications of the war in Ukraine for global security, economy, energy security, and food security. At the charity dinner, we will celebrate the resilience and the spirit of the Ukrainian people, and raise funds for the reconstruction of medical facilities in Ukraine that have been destroyed by the russian army.

Some of the confirmed speakers at the event are Dr. Paul Krugman (Nobel Prize Winner in Economics ’08), and Dr. Roger Myerson (Nobel Prize Winner in Economics’ 07), Jeffrey Sonnenfeld, John Herbst, Serhii Plokhii, Yuriy Gorodnichenko, Tymofii Brik, Tymofiy Mylovanov. Several top Ukrainian officials including Andriy Yermak, the Chief of Zelensky’s administration, Yulia Svyrydenko, the First Vice Prime Minister and the Minister of Economy of Ukraine, and several other ministers will participate as well (some of them might be online due to the situation in Ukraine).

The conference and charity dinner are co-organized by the Kyiv School of Economics (the top Ukrainian university, economic think tank, and educational charity) and United24 (the fundraising platform initiated by the President of Ukraine). Razom is honored to serve as an information partner for the event.
