Please join us on Tuesday, March 29 at this year’s Social Impact Conference, Making a Difference in a Complex World: Reimagining the Social Change Toolkit, for a day of thought-provoking conversations and practical workshops on responding to complex humanitarian crises, mapping networks and systems, collaborative problem solving, the power of policy and public office to address systemic problems and more.
