Path Forward: Operation Warp Speed

Event Date: 
Wednesday, January 6, 2021 - 2:00pm to 3:00pm


America is restarting the economy after a lengthy shutdown. The effort to bring millions of people back to work brings lots of big, complicated questions. Path Forward, a series produced by the U.S. Chamber Foundation, is designed to help business and community leaders find the answers they need to execute a responsible reopening strategy and plan for a post-pandemic world.

How do we protect employees and customers from the coronavirus? What are some of the barriers to a successful reopening of the economy? Where can my staff get COVID-19 tests? Masks? Gloves? Who’s going to pay for all this? Each episode features conversations between the U.S. Chamber of Commerce President Suzanne Clark and experts with practical recommendations for businesses of all sizes. Path Forward events take place at 2 p.m. EST every other Wednesday.

If you can’t attend, you’ll find a recording of each episode on the Foundation’s website, Facebook page, and YouTube channel.


Operation Warp Speed's goal is to produce and deliver 300 million doses of safe and effective vaccines with the initial doses available by January 2021, as part of a broader strategy to accelerate the development, manufacturing, and distribution of COVID-19 vaccines, therapeutics, and diagnostics. On this episode, we discussed the work OWS has been doing to produce and deliver COVID-19 vaccines, how they've been working across government and with the private sector, where things stand, and what to expect over the next six months.
