Becoming the Change (Agent) You Wish To See

Recording: Becoming the Change (Agent) You Wish To See, Date TBA

In a fast-paced culture that often rewards productivity over purpose, the pandemic and social justice movements over the past year and a half offered many individuals a chance to reexamine what it means to live more meaningful lives. But what does it really take to be an agent of change in our communities? And how do we start?
This panel will explore various leaders who transformed their lives and business/organizational ventures to better align with their passions, values and beliefs. Key players will reflect on the pivotal moments that shaped their stories — including what drove them toward their current destination and mistakes they encountered along the way — and will provide useful advice for those embarking on their own socially impactful journeys to improve our communities.
