By Invitation Only - CEO Salon 

This invitation only CEO salon with philanthropic and global leaders is hosted by SCG and Ron Burkle and held in partnership with  the UCLA Burkle Center for International Relations. We will be joined by special guest Vuk Jeremić, who is a candidate to become the next UN Secretary General, after Ban Ki-moon's term finishes in 2016.

Vuk currently serves as President of the Center for International Relations and Sustainable Development (CIRSD), a nonprofit policy organization working to promote a peaceful international system as well as economic, social, and environmental sustainability on a global scale. The CIRSD Board of Directors is comprised of prominent international figures, policymakers, and academicians.

A graduate of Cambridge and Harvard, Vuk served for close to six years as the Foreign Minister of Serbia, until directly elected in 2012 by the majority of the world’s nations to become the 67th President of the UN General Assembly. During his term in office, Vuk played a leading role in steering the UN towards the establishment of a global post-2015 sustainable development agenda.

Vuk will engage us in a dialogue on current world affairs and global strategies to address some of our most pressing economic, social, and environmental issues today.
