Event Details:

Join us for our Winter 2018 Conversations in Global Health seminar featuring Steve Davis, president and CEO of PATH. In this role, Davis combines his extensive experience as a technology business leader, global health advocate, and social innovator to accelerate great ideas and bring lifesaving solutions to scale. He oversees PATH’s work of driving transformative global health innovation to save and improve lives, reaching 219 million people in 2013.

Davis’ long-standing commitment to human rights and global development grew from his early work on refugee programs and policies, and from his later focus on Chinese politics and law. He has employed that same passion as a leader and strategist for a range of private and nonprofit companies and international organizations, including as CEO of internet pioneer and global digital media firm Corbis, director of social innovation for McKinsey & Company, and interim CEO of the Infectious Disease Research Institute. Earlier in his career, he practiced law at the international law firm of K&L Gates with a focus on intellectual property.

Davis is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and holds a faculty appointment as a lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.  He currently serves on the boards of InterAction and Global Partnerships, and sits on several advisory groups, including the World Economic Forum’s Global Agenda Council on Social Innovation, the Clinton Global Initiative’s Global Health Advisory Board, the Council on Foreign Relation’s Task Force on Noncommunicable Diseases, and Welcome Trust’s Sustaining Health Dialogue. He previously has served on numerous corporate and non-profit boards.

The conversation is part of "Conversations in Global Health," a quarterly seminar series presented by Stanford Global Health and facilitated by Paul Costello, Stanford Medicine chief communications officer.
