HOW TO BUILD A MOVEMENT OVERNIGHTThey say it takes 10 years to make an overnight success. The participants in this conversation seized movement-making opportunities when they appeared, and were able to inspire others to take overnight action because they were prepared, positioned to do so. Featuring Charles Blow, New York Times, Bob Bland, Co-Founder, Women's March; Lorella Praeli, ACLU Director of immigration policy and campaigns; Congresswoman Barbara Lee (D - CA); and Roland Lescure, French National Assembly Member.
CULTURE: HOW TO TURN A MESSAGE INTO A MOVEMENTMovement-making is, at heart, about shifting culture. When creators of culture work hand in hand with movement-makers and activists who share their values, they can reach people emotionally and intellectually, and inspire them to action. In various ways participants in this conversation have all told compelling stories that helped to engage audience members with positive cultural movements. Featuring Caty Borum Chattoo, Center for Media and Social Impact; Michael Premo, Storyline; Gbenga Akinnagbe, Actor; Palmiro Ocampo, Peruvian Chef; Geeta Gandbhir, Director, Activist.
CSR IS DEAD: WHAT’S NEXT?These days, consumers and employees alike demand that the companies they support with their dollars or their labor have a fundamental sense of purpose, beyond the now- traditional triple-bottom-line of people, planet, and profits. Each of these panelists looks beyond traditional CSR or sustainability, leading purpose-driven initiatives or companies that leverage the core power of their business to address important social or environmental needs. Featuring Derrick Feldman, Achieve / MCON; Shamina Singh, Mastercard; Gwendolyn Floyd, Soko; and Esther Speck, LuLuLemon.
THE POWER OF PARTNERSHIPSWhen organizations of different sectors work in collaboration toward a common goal, each contributing their unique strengths, they’re able to achieve transformative results that none could reach on their own. This session will discuss an inspiring conversation about a multi-sectoral partnership - highlighting successes and challenges, tools and approaches that young leaders can use to imagine, build and sustain collaborative partnerships that create lasting impact. Featuring Sarah Colamarino, Johnson & Johnson; Elizabeth Cousens, United Nations Foundation; Michael Klosson, Save the Children; Yardena Gerwin, GirlUp Teen Advisor.
NEFARIOUS MOVEMENTSFrom white supremacy and radical Islam, from twitter-bots pushing government sponsored propaganda and disinformation to troll-armies harassing private individuals, nefarious movements are having great success in attracting supporters and influencing what happens at local, national and international levels. This conversation will inform us about nefarious movements, and give movement-makers some approaches to coopting and combatting nefarious movements around us. Featuring Lois Beckett, The Guardian; Jasmine El-Gamal, Atlantic Council; Yassmin Abdel-Magied, author and activist; Mari Malek, model and DJ; Daryl Davis, musician; and Theo Wilson, activist.
HOW TO BUILD A MOVEMENT THAT OUTLIVES USThe problems we organize around are, by definition, large, complex and deeply rooted. Building a movement that lasts - and even outlives you - depends upon leaders with a long-term vision who work to build sustainable organizations, and to embed the values and priorities of the movement as deeply as possible in the culture. From Middle East peace negotiations to the fight to insure education access for all and combating global climate change, our panelists are working on critical issues that will take time and wide ranging effort to solve. Featuring, Terje Rod-Larsen, International Peace Institute; Muzoon Almellehan, Syrian Education Activist; Rhea Suh, NRDC; Jeff Radebe, Minister in the Presidency of South Africa.
Plus, Sean Parker, investor and philanthropist; Lillianne Ploumen, Minister for Foreign Trade and Development Cooperation, Netherlands; Pete Dominick, comedian and more.
