NO MORE ALWAYS-DONE-IT-THIS-WAY: SOCIAL MEDIA = SOCIAL CHANGE

Print PagePrint Page


For a world in need of transformative solutions to pressing political, economic, health, and environmental challenges, the breathtaking advances in communications technology and social media create tremendous opportunities to connect and inform people quickly and cheaply, to open up siloed institutions — or bypass them altogether —  and to dramatically speed the uptake of innovative ideas.

These advances in communication converge with the coming-of-age Millennial Generation who have never known a world without an Internet and for whom traveling the information highway and building social networks is as natural as long-distance calling was to their parents.

The Global Social Enterprise Initiative, the Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business, and the communications firm Brodeur Partners — who share a commitment to the importance of collaboration across all sectors in achieving social progress — have partnered to bring you this forum with leading practitioners in  business, media, and education who are using social media for social change.
