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 whom do we look to 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 platform to drive change in education reform, the refugee crisis, job creation for the formerly incarcerated, and climate change.

As Shaiza Rizavi, ’96BUS, emphasized in her remarks at the 2017 Tamer Center for Social Enterprise Awards Breakfast, we each have a role to play for this is our future to form. What could we accomplish together if we each collaborated with one or two people in this room? We have a choice to call upon each other and motivate ourselves and others into action. Take a stand towards driving innovation and impact around social challenges and participate in our day-long hackathon led by TYTHEdesign. During the hackathon, 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.
