Path Forward

Path Forward Telly Awards


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.

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

We are proud to share that our Path Forward series won four Telly Awards – the world’s largest honor for video and television content across all screens. Since April 2020, we’ve hosted more than 40 Path Forward episodes, featuring conversations with some of the most influential names shaping the global and national COVID response.
