A community changing today's world

The Rhodes Global Policy Summit on Pandemic Preparedness brought together world-leading thinkers from the Rhodes community and beyond to debate how we can learn from the Covid-19 pandemic and prevent a similar event blighting the lives of millions in the future.

The summit created connections that would not otherwise have existed, prompted many conversations in global media, and sparked new collaborations and new thinking that will have a lasting impact on global public health thinking.

This is Exponential Potential made real.

It’s all about leadership. Our world today needs courageous, wise, generous, service-minded leaders — and the Rhodes is dedicated to expanding and empowering them. What better place to invest?

Philip Ma
The Rhodes Trust is uniquely positioned to convene leaders from different areas of expertise and regions of the world, in critical areas that touch the global community, such as pandemic preparedness. It was a privilege to work with the Rhodes Trust and the Global Health community on our recent ‘Always On’ Pandemic Preparedness Summit, and I hope this example inspires other efforts for the Rhodes and the broader global community.
