Disruptor Series - Women Disrupting for Good

Disruptor Series - Women Disrupting for Good

As we face ever growing societal and environmental challenges, we are increasingly looking to social impact leaders to learn from their methods for creating positive change. In this panel focused on disrupting for the greater good of society, we will hear from exemplary impact leaders who are mobilizing change. The discussion will examine impactful innovations, technologies and businesses that are positively disrupting the status quo to catalyze change.

Learn how these impact leaders are making a difference in society. Hear about their personal journeys, and what led each to become a change maker. Join us, and be inspired to lead the change you want to see in the world!
