    Forward Thinking is a new podcast series hosted by Michael Chui and Anna Bernasek. We want to inform and provoke your thinking by interviewing names you may know—like Nobel prizewinners Jennifer Doudna and Sir Christopher Pissarides—and by introducing up-and-comers you should know. We ask experts to tell us about the key changes they see that will shape our lives, our businesses, and our societies…Including what comes next after COVID-19, global health, climate change, the future of work, diversity, inclusion, inequality, and cutting-edge technology like the bio revolution and artificial intelligence. Interviews are underpinned by deep McKinsey Global Institute research that provides fundamental insights needed by leaders like you.
