On behalf of SPS at Columbia University, I would like to thank the Co-Chairs and Organizer of the Philadelphia CHRO Summit. The HCM M.S. Program at Columbia University is a unique program designed by industry executives—CHROs and CEOs—to meet today’s and tomorrow’s changing industry demands. This is more than a curriculum; it's the reflections and articulations of C-suite executives and students dedicated to the real-time advancement of people, profit, and planet. It's a vision by you and for you. This is the continuation of a movement. I invite all of you to join us on the journey, the redefinition of the future of work and people as a differentiator in business excellence.
