Bill Ford Is Convening A Forum On Mobility Challenges And Solutions

Ford Motor Company Executive Chairman Bill Ford is convening a “World Mobility Leadership Forum” in Detroit on September 28th and 29th, bringing 250 leaders from the automotive and tech industries – as well as government officials – together to discuss global mobility challenges and solutions.

According to a release, specific mobility issues to be discussed include urban congestion, healthcare delivery, the accessibility of transportation for the disabled, and environmental sustainability. These are all concerns that Bill Ford has raised prior, and issues that the automaker believes could effectively be addressed by “Smart Mobility” – assuming that the automaker can forge the right partnerships.

“The societal and mobility challenges being faced around the globe only can be addressed by working together,” said Bill Ford. “Now is the time for our industries, infrastructure partners, non-profits and government agencies to accelerate the development of the necessary transportation solutions that will improve people’s lives.”

In addition to Bill Ford, other key speakers at the forum will include General Motor CEO Mary Barra, Volvo Car Group President/CEO Hakan Samuelsson, and executives from the likes of Toyota, Lyft, and Cisco.
