Developing Responsible and Innovative Leaders

A 2017 study by the Lovell Corporation found that those born between 1994 and 2001 are guided by what gives them purpose and passion, and fosters impact in their world and beyond. But often times the question starts with, 'where do I begin?' How do we guide this new generation to harness their talents and unleash their potential? Two leading social innovators from social start-up incubators will lead a series of activities to help participants grow as innovative leaders who have the confidence to catalyze change in the world.
