Join us for our second social impact event.

Social innovation is a broad church.

Designers, researchers, strategists, analysts and communicators are working across corporate, government and not-for-profit organisations. The work is complex, but the premise remains simple: address social and environmental needs with business-minded innovation. Create shared value.

Social impact collaborators #2 is all about being inspired by your colleagues; a pause to appreciate the amazing work being done and share a few tricks from the bottom of the kit bag.

This edition we’re going global, with international perspectives and case studies from Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. We explore where great work is being done and who’s at the table to make it happen.

At our second social impact event, we ask the question, ‘what can we expect next’?
