Last week, nearly 2,500 leaders in politics, business, civil society, media, and academia participated in the World Economic Forum’s 2022 Annual Meeting in Davos.
Held in-person for the first time in over two years due to the global pandemic, the meeting offered a unique environment for stakeholders across sectors to reconnect, exchange insights, and strategize on solutions to the world’s most urgent challenges, from the ongoing pandemic to the war in Ukraine and climate change.
As an alliance-based model for change that converses across sectors, social innovation is essential to driving forward lasting solutions to the most complex economic, social, and environmental problems. As such, Echoing Green was thrilled that several Echoing Green Fellows brought social innovation frameworks to Davos, including Karen Tse ’02, Elizabeth Hausler ’04, Kennedy Odede ’10, and Donnel Baird ’12. Their leadership, voices, and impact represent the new and disruptive approaches needed to achieve positive social change.
Additionally, Echoing Green President and 1992 Fellow Cheryl L. Dorsey participated in three sessions centered on trust, racial equity, and stakeholder inclusion. Read on to learn the essential takeaways from Cheryl’s sessions.
