SOCIAL IMPACT BREAKFAST SERIES
Shaping a New Economy: Elevating Marginalized Communities
with Aquila Leon-Soon ’13, founder and CEO of ATS + Partners
Wednesday, July 1, 2020
7:45-8:45 AM EDT
Webinar details included in RSVP confirmation email.
Aquila Leon-Soon founded and runs ATS + Partners, a firm that helps organizations align their human capital to their mission and values. In this breakfast series installment, Aquila will explore how ATS and other social impact supporters — both organizations and individuals — can help shape a new economy post-COVID-19, in part by placing a more significant emphasis on helping communities that have faced the hardships of marginalization: food insecurity, a technological divide, education inequality, remote work inequity, and more. Join us to be part of this exploration and brainstorm session.
