Changing the Changemakers: Non-Profit Innovation

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Pre-internet-era institutions gave us things like the Clean Air Act, Women's Suffrage, an end to slavery, and the Civil Rights Act. But times have changed and these organizations weren't built to move at the speed of the internet.
Today change is increasingly being lead by individuals, activists, and start-up groups -- not just name brand change-making organizations.
Find out how current and past staff from well-established organizations like UNICEF, Greenpeace, Oxfam, and the Sierra Club are pursuing radical changes in order to thrive and survive in this new landscape. We'll hear from staff leading innovation projects, labs, and transition teams at each of these organizations for a discussion on how institutions are using tech to adapt and break through.
