Description:

"I’m tired of looking around and seeing the same problems I saw when I was a kid - except they are worse. It’s time we get serious about harnessing every tool - from business-building to non-profits to the academy to politics - in the pursuit of creating economic security for everyone and empowering everyone to live fully human. In my presentation, I’ll discuss some of the
big, unfulfilled opportunities to solve hard problems and heal suffering in our communities."
