The Collective Impact: Destination Dallas-Fort Worth panel of social innovators brings together a variety of perspectives — from nonprofits to corporations to startups — to discuss the state of social innovation in the North Texas region and beyond.
This wide-ranging discussion, moderated by Salah Boukadoum, explores the attraction of Dallas as a regional hub for impact, analyzes the role of businesses and nonprofits, asks how we can do better, and ends with predictions of where things are heading. Boukadoum, as a social entrepreneur and founder, is uniquely positioned to lead the discussion, as well as participate.
