Why should you attend Frontiers of Social Innovation? Join us 12-14 May 2020 at Stanford University for this thought-provoking convening of global leaders. Stanford Social Innovation Review (https://ssir.org/) will bring together leading academic, social, business, and political actors to examine critical issues emerging from the economic, political, social and environmental forces shaping our world.

To better understand the discussions that take place at our convening, listen to this session from the 2018 conference: “The Tenuous Relationship Between Technology and Social Innovation,” with Rob Reich, professor of Political Science, Stanford University, Kelly Born, program officer, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, and Arisha Hatch, managing director of of Campaigns, Color of Change. In this podcast, our panel discusses topics including election integrity in the United States, online organizing around discriminatory policing, and the spread of hate speech and false information on social media platforms.
