The Digital Imperative to Prevail, Rebuild and Thrive
Adapting and innovating in a digital world is a not always a top priority for organizations around the world. For countries like Ukraine, it is an absolute necessity in order to prevail and prepare a sustainable future. We are bringing together Ukrainian officials and entrepreneurs with Haas faculty and fellows to present how transformation challenges can be tackled with impact.
Join us for an exclusive afternoon conference and cocktail to learn about research on the future of work, open innovation, about case studies on the “Army of Drones”, Ukrainian deep tech and cyber defense, lessons learned on entrepreneurship and hackathon at country-scale. See how digital transformation is essential to prepare Ukraine’s future.
With participation of: Olesya Zaluska (USAID CEP Director), Sohyeong Kim (Executive Director of Food Design Research at Stanford University), Julia Berezovska (President of the Ukranian Club of Berkeley), Bowman Heiden (Executive Director at Tusher Initiative for Management of Intellectual Capital), Svitlana Kostenko (President of Soborna Ukraine) and Ihor Markevych (Government Ukrainian Startup Fund, Head of startup programs).
The Berkeley-Ukraine Conference will be held online and in-person at Spieker Forum (Chou Hall, 6th Floor) at the Haas School of Business, UC Berkeley, 2:00pm-6:00pm after the Fisher Center Summit & World Business Analytics Awards.

The Ukrainian Club of Berkeley is at the forefront of uniting members of the UC Berkeley community who stand with Ukraine and want to learn more about Ukraine, its history, and culture or who identify as Ukrainian.
Our mission is to go beyond ourselves in bringing and uniting the world’s best minds around Ukraine, protecting the Ukrainian identity, people, culture, and history, reimagining and rebuilding Ukraine, and enriching the world through the Ukrainian perspective and experience.
