The current political climate creates an uneasy world stage for companies to navigate. Who are the business leaders who are stepping up to the challenge and leading by example? In turbulent times to whom do we look for leadership? Join us on October 6, 2017, as we explore how to enact social impact across disciplines: philanthropies, nonprofit organizations, social ventures, and traditional business. In this year's conference, you will meet business and organizational leaders who actively use their platforms to drive change in education reform, the refugee crisis, job creation for the formerly incarcerated, and climate change. Take a stand toward driving innovation and impact around social challenges and participate in our day-long interactive workshop led by TYTHEdesign. During the workshop, participants will use the insights and best practices from conference speakers to create strategies and solutions for impact with cross-disciplinary thinkers, innovators, and changemakers.
