Creating Pathways into the World of Social Impact

Sunday, March 15
3:30PM - 4:30PM

Austin City Hall
Council Chambers
301 W 2nd St

The world of social good is growing exponentially as social changemakers appear in all age groups and immerse themselves in all sectors. They range from primary school students who have ideas about how to improve their communities to business students and corporate professionals see that business can be used as a force for social good. Everywhere young people are demanding more meaning in their personal and professional lives. They are beginning to recognize and exercise their power to create social change on their own, whether individually through social entrepreneurship or collectively in large scale social movements.
This panel brings together experts who support young people to create positive social change in their entrepreneurial or corporate journeys as well as provide examples of how social movements can develop organically and become sustainable. We invite you to connect with these experts and other like-minded peers as you create your own pathway to social impact.
