World Leaders, CEOs, & Global Celebrities Gather at Harvard University for the HPAIR Summit



CAMBRIDGE, Mass., Sept. 28, 2021 — The Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) that operates the largest student-run conference in the USA and Asia has concluded its flagship HPAIR 2021 Conference. It was the most extensive gathering in its 30-year history. The summit’s theme was Reinventing with Resilience, where attendees shared visions on improving the state of the world following COVID-19 by engaging in disruptive innovation across social, political, academic, and business dimensions.

Government ministers, Fortune 500 business CEOs, and decorated celebrities listed below gathered at Harvard University.

• Notable keynote speakers for the event included:

“Our core focus has always been to gather people who are pioneers in their respective fields and engage them in Socratic dialogue with one another on issues of global importance. And then to capture those ideas generated and share them worldwide,” remarked Zeel Patel, Co-President of HPAIR. “It creates a mesocosm of information transfer that only happens when two leaders interact, such as the CEO of The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and Co-Founder of Wikipedia.”

Lesly Goh, former CTO of The World Bank Group and member of HPAIR’s Board of Advisors, applauded the global team on their achievements: “it was quite a pleasure to support Zeel, Eric, and their team of 75 Harvard students as they orchestrated the conference from their Dubai, Boston, and Taipei offices. While the virtual format brought on tremendous challenges, it also provided incredible opportunities to maximize HPAIR’s impact and accelerate our mission of democratizing insights to our delegates, connecting young future leaders with leaders globally.”

The Harvard College Project for Asian and International Relations (HPAIR) is a 30-year-old non-profit organization founded to create a forum of exchange for young professionals and current world leaders to discuss and learn about the most important technological, political, and economic issues facing the globe. The mission is to connect today’s top leaders with the future leaders of tomorrow in a dynamic forum of engagement.

Since 1991, HPAIR has organized 50 conferences in 19 different host countries, touching the lives of more than 40,000 students and young professionals. In addition, HPAIR hosts two student-led conferences a year, one on Harvard’s campus and one in Asia-Pacific.
