Social Innovation Summit 2020

Now more than ever, we will leverage the Summit’s convening power to engage our network and provide an opportunity for impact leaders to benefit from timely content, conversation, and community.

Social Innovation Summit (http://www.socinnovation.com) today announced its launch of an all-digital online format for its annual convening of corporate social responsibility, foundation, startup, nonprofit, government, and philanthropy executive leaders to be held on June 2-4, 2020, waiving the general registration fee ($1,895 value) to provide complimentary tickets to 3,000+ changemakers, entrepreneurs, and influencers.

High-profile speakers who have participated in the past include: Alicia Keys, Aly Raisman, Andrew Yang, Arianna Huffington, Ban Ki Moon, Barbara Bush, Baron Davis, Carly Fiorina, Craig Venter, Dean Kamen, Dikembe Mutombo, Mayor Eric Garcetti, Glenn Close, Hamdi Ulukaya, Howard Buffett, Jessica Alba, Mark Cuban, Nick Cannon, Reid Hoffman, Rob Lowe, Rooney Mara, Rudy Ruettiger, Steve Gleason, Ted Danson, Van Jones, Wilmer Valderrama, will.i.am, and more.

“Social Innovation Summit is more than just a conference, this year in particular as we applaud the essential heroes around us but also witness underlying disparities in our cities,” reflected Zeev Klein, Social Innovation Summit founder and curator. “Now more than ever, we will leverage the Summit’s convening power to engage our network and provide an opportunity for impact leaders to benefit from timely content, conversation, and community.”

This year’s virtual program will dive into relevant themes like Future of Work; Education & STEM; Emergency Relief & Recovery; Tech for Good; Economic Inclusion; Impact Investing; Youth Development; Leading with Purpose; and Gender Equity. Through a variety of keynotes, featured speakers, and digital discussions divided into morning and afternoon sessions, Social Innovation Summit is an opportunity to stay connected (while apart) and build a community of people motivated to strengthen lasting partnerships for systemic change.

The Summit is joined by an incredible group of sponsors dedicated to accelerating positive impact through their work, including AARP, Best Buy, Blackbaud, BlackRock, Comcast NBCUniversal, Discovery Education, eBay, Fidelity Charitable, Horizon Therapeutics, Kauffman Foundation, Lyft, Microsoft, NAF, NIKE, Postmates, Prudential Financial, PwC, Starbucks, UBS, and WE Communications.
