The iV conference is an annual professional conference on plant-based diets and bioethics featuring renowned leaders from across the disciplines. Our presenters and invited guests represent a variety of fields including medicine, climatology, policy, industry, finance, and consulting. The iV sessions emphasize innovation, self-critique, and re-examination of a plant-based diet as an elegant solution to a host of pressing issues in an increasingly global community.
Attendees can expect an atmosphere of productivity and dialogue as we examine scholarship and industry through a critical lens and endeavor to forge new, ambitious techniques to improve the world around us. With a focus on common goals and a commitment to powerful solutions, we seek to strengthen a professional network to directly and indirectly wield influence in academia, industry, and beyond to shift the paradigm for addressing global issues.
The conference begins on a Friday morning and ends early Sunday afternoon. The first day of the conference is entirely devoted to business, finance, and industry programming featuring market-changing companies and investors in areas such as food, fashion, and healthcare. The remaining programming consists of presentations and panels by renowned scholars and covers a variety of fields and disciplines. The conference ends with a large, multidisciplinary career fair to facilitate job and internship recruiting. Throughout the conference are social events, networking sessions, and catered meals and hors d’oeuvres.
