This tag line could very well be related to "An Inconvenient Truth", Al Gore’s thought provoking movie that I recommend everyone to go watch, and ponder upon. But it is actually the tag line of the podcasting channel that the Stanford Center for Social Innovation is launching tonight on Doug Kaye’s Conversations Network: Social Innovation Conversations.
The Center, which is part of the Stanford Graduate School of Business, seeks to build a community of people actively engaged in social innovation, and strengthen the capacity of individuals and organizations to develop innovative solutions to social problems for a more just, sustainable and healthy world. It is part of the curriculum of the Standford MBA program, and does research work on organizational aspects of non-profits.
The purpose of “Social Innovation Conversations” is to be a collaborative online platform for experts, community leaders, and scholars to share their knowledge across sectors for multi-disciplinary learning. The Center will offer conferences, faculty lectures, speaker events and expert interviews. In addition, leading professional and other academic institutions will be invited to contribute content to the channel to raise public awareness about the grand challenges of the world.
Not only is it a very interesting program, it is also something close to my heart since the founding Producer for the channel, and Program and Marketing Manager of the Center, is none other than my beloved wife, Bernadette. So here goes for the family plug .
