During the HBLF 25th Anniversary Week (October 9-13, 2017) we are organizing several professional programs for the business, public and civil sector representatives in order to summarize the past 25 years successes, lessons learned. In partnership with our members and stakeholders we would like to use this opportunity to identify the focus and activities for the next decades to come.

The flagship event of the Anniversary Week will be the 25th anniversary jubilee event at the Hungarian Academy of Sciences on October 12th. During the Jubilee Week we will organise high-level occasions, an Extraordinary HBLF Summit at the Constitutional Court hosted by President Tamás Sulyok, an Exclusive CEO Forum at the invitation of Minister János Lázár in the Parliament, an occasion for the 202020 Club members at the Canadian Embassy included with the EU Diversity Charter Signatory Event hosted by HE Isabelle Poupart, Ambassador of Canada. The sustainability workstream will hold an event titled ‘Europe Ambition 2030’ hosted by Dr. Gyula Bándi, Deputy-Commissioner for Fundamental Rights, Ombudsman for Future Generations. The diversity workstream will organise an unconscious bias training for c-level executives. During the Jubilee Week HMA Iain Lindsay will hold a celebration dinner for HBLF.
