Moving Beyond the Buzz of Purpose & Impact

Climate change. Global poverty. Social Injustice. How on earth do we mitigate, let alone solve, daunting challenges like these facing our world? Over the last year, doctoral student and IDEO designer Nina Montgomery brought together 40 leading voices from across sectors to reflect on this question in two books. The short answer: we need moon-shoot goals and unprecedented collaboration. Learn how senior leaders from Acumen, Sephora, Airbnb, Google, Sesame Workshop, TEDx, Women’s March Global, Harvard, and more are shaping a new approach to making impact in the 21st century. And learn what you – and your organization - can do to join forces and lead the way.
