Principal Research Associate,

Knowledge without truth is like an empty barrel. It doesn’t hold much value. When addressing the most pressing issues of our time, and with the stakes being so high, we need to take responsibility. Now more than ever, leaders and decision-makers must inform their deliberations with objective and evidentiary research. At the Conference Board, we are making these impactful contributions daily, and it is an inspiring environment to work in.
