The 2022 Lexington Summit marked a new focus for Concordia. Gathering in Lexington, Kentucky—the very heartland of America—this first-of-its-kind event saw us take a domestic approach. We highlighted voices directly impacted by the increasing socio-economic divide across the country, and we identified opportunities for collaboration, innovation, and progress.
We are proud to have worked with an incredible line up of Partners and Sponsors on the ground in Kentucky, alongside the many individuals and organizations that make up our global community. Thank you, in particular, to our Principal Programming Partners at the University of Kentucky: the J. David Rosenberg College of Law, the Gatton College of Business and Economics, and the College of Education. Thank you, also, to our Principal Programming Sponsor, Rubicon Technologies, and Nate Morris, its Chairman and CEO, and Chair of the Lexington Summit. Thank you to all of our Members, Partners, Sponsors, Leadership Council Members, and Advisors who were able to join us in person in Lexington, and to the many more who supported us remotely.
We’d also like to extend our gratitude to Grammy-winning legends The Temptations for giving a special live performance at the Lexington Opera House to celebrate the spirit of heartland America. With deep ties to Detroit, The Temptations are a staple in American culture, and it was a privilege to hear from founding member Otis Williams on the group’s heritage in the U.S. heartland.
We hope you find our 2022 Lexington Summit Report to be a useful, action-oriented resource to guide your work, conversations, and next steps, and we look forward to working with you over the coming months as we plan our 2022 Americas and Annual Summits.
