SAN DIEGO — Some of the most successful business leaders and philanthropists met at University of San Diego for the 2022 Cause Conference on Thursday.

More than 300 attendees were expected to attend the sold-out conference on Thursday.
The event was hosted by CBS 8's Carlo Cechetto and featured a headline list of speakers and panelists.
Some of the business leaders scheduled to speak included Donna DeBerry, CEO of the San Diego County Black Chamber of Commerce, and Grant Oliphant CEO of the Conrad Prebys Foundation.
The conference featured a panel on the changing online and offline media landscape. One of the speakers included was Alberto Mier y Terán, President and General Manager of CBS 8 and The CW San Diego.
Another panel focused on how businesses can make life at work, home and in the community better for employees.
