Social Good Track – Silicon Slopes Summit
2:00 p.m. Jan. 30 | Find Your World-Changing Social Innovation
Leaders: Terri Ludwig, President of Philanthropy at Ballmer Group & Jim Shelton, Chief Impact and Investment Officer at Blue Meridian Group
More and more companies are becoming key partners in solving major social and global challenges. They’re building impact goals into their core business models. This is both a moral imperative and a recruitment and retention prerequisite. Hear from President Obama’s Deputy Secretary of Education and the President of Steve Ballmer’s philanthropy about how they came to invest in outcomes, systems transformation, and the partnerships that sit behind big change. Be in conversation about the role that technology, data systems, and data capability can play in achieving change at scale, and the impact that these investors are seeing across the country.
3:15 p.m. Jan. 30 | Together We Go Far: Partnerships for Economic Mobility
Leaders: Jennifer Blatz, CEO of Strive Together & Bill Crim, President and CEO of United Way of Salt Lake
Along the Wasatch Front and in communities across the country, philanthropists, business leaders, nonprofits, education, and government leaders are working together to solve some of the most pressing social issues we face. Using technology that supports aggregation and analysis is critical in order to understand and enable solutions. Hear inspiring lessons about how uncommon partners are rallying resources and using data to build more equitable outcomes for kids and how those working on changing society are learning how to harness technology forces for good.
Other Social Good Sessions include Prisoner Reform, Tech Goes Rural, Operation Underground Railroad, and MORE!
