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.

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.

Yearly SE Conference

In this hackathon, Design Thinking is integrated with systems thinking to develop impactful strategies for problem-solving. Through engaging with a series of participatory activities, workshop participants will tackle social challenges, such as education reform, the refugee crisis, job creation for the formerly incarcerated, and climate change.

The workshop will introduce participants to a series of tools and frameworks to help them identify more effective ways of addressing these challenges, generate creative ideas quickly as well as participatory-decision making techniques and innovative ways to surge ahead. Moreover, the participants will develop a plan for how to apply these practices to their own work, meet peers across disciplines, and dive into business model development to solve today's pressing issues. You will leave the conference with deepened insights and practical strategies for actively intervening.

In order to prepare for our hackathon, please rank the 4 societal challenges we will be focusing on at this confernece in order of 1 = first choice and 4 = last choice. Questions? Please give us a call at 212.854.1649.
