The Exchange 2020: Unifying Leadership: 10th annual two-day conference pushes toward transformation with a pathway towards a more equitable society September 23 and 24
The Social Impact Exchange, a national, cross-sector membership association dedicated to generating large-scale impact, has announced details of the nonprofit’s 10th annual conference. The Exchange 2020: Unifying Leadership will take place virtually Wednesday, September 23 and Thursday, September 24, and offers funders and leaders from the nonprofit, corporate, philanthropy and public sectors a unique multi-sector gathering place to scale impact together. Alexander Rossides, founder and president, Social Impact Exchange, made the announcement.
The agenda includes thought-provoking and inspiring conversations and provides tangible solutions and initiatives that participants can invest in to address the critical challenges we face. The conference will open with a keynote by Mark Suzman, CEO, Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, and features more than 25 founders and CEO speakers.
“What does the post-COVID world look like? How do we emerge from the turbulence created by the simultaneous racial, political, and economic crises we face as a nation with a pathway toward transformation and a new normal that moves us all to a much more equitable society?” asks Rossides. “We have to change systemically because recovery that returns us to the status quo is not what we aspire to. Over two days, we’ll address the structural inequities that exist in health access, educational opportunity, the need for reimagining capitalism, transformation of cities, and more. For those who want to come out of this and drive towards a new and different way for society to work together that is more equitable, The Exchange 2020: Unifying Leadership is the conference to attend.”
