Virtual Conversation – 2024: The Year of Global Elections

2024 is undoubtedly one of the most anticipated years in recent history, in part due to its moniker of being the “biggest global election year in history.” With more than 40 national elections taking place, countries take their turn casting their ballots. While at the same time, corporate leaders anxiously watch the results roll in and determine how the outcomes will impact industries, stakeholder dynamics, corporate reputations, supply chains and trade, geopolitical relations, among other facets of society. Regardless of the region, this year’s elections process is expected to be arduous, divisive and uncertain.

BCW’s Global Corporate Affairs Practice recently led a discussion focused on the anticipated impacts of the major global elections taking place throughout 2024. Leaders representing regions of some of the most high-stakes elections across the globe discussed how companies can proactively tell their story, protect their reputation and license to operate, and prepare for and capitalize on the opportunities presented during these tumultuous times.
