Event Details

No matter your mission, one thing is true for all of us: we can’t go back to the way things were.

2020 has fundamentally unsettled us, calling into question how we live, who we see, and what we value.

As changemakers, we now have an extraordinary opportunity to propose — and collectively engineer — a future that doesn’t just help our communities survive, but instead reimagines society so that every person can thrive.

Consider this your invitation to help design the next normal.

Independent Sector Members: Receive one complimentary ticket for each one purchased.
