Mar 17, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

Throughout history, cultural and narrative strategies have been manipulated to socially engineer violence, authoritarianism and social divides. Social justice movements have leveraged these strategies to dismantle and delegitimize the same systems of oppression. Yet, real social innovation and transformation requires to not only dismantle the current reality, but to use our collective imagination, creativity, generative networks, analysis and action to make the old reality obsolete.
Join an all-female panel of CEOs, narrative experts, artists and researchers for a deep dive into understanding the neuroscience, foundational concepts and methods to use cultural and narrative strategies that build real peace grounded in empathy, equity and belonging for all.
