Global Perspectives of Ecosystem Builders Responding to COVID-19

Each year the Skoll World Forum convenes the world’s most influential social entrepreneurs, key thought leaders, and strategic partners at the University of Oxford’s Saïd Business School to exchange ideas and activate solutions. Due to COVID-19, that event is cancelled this year. But while official programming in Oxford is cancelled, Skoll World Forum Week is moving online with independently-organized Ecosystem Events going virtual.

One session in particular may be of particular interest to many ecosystem builders: Global perspectives of ecosystem builders responding to COVID-19. This session will be held Monday, March 30 at 1:00pm ET. The session will be moderated by Ecosystem Builder Hub contributor Anika Horn and will include Portland’s Rich Turoczy as one of the panelists.

This panel will zero-in on the role of ecosystem builders in listening, connecting, supporting social entrepreneurs at the local level, particularly as many struggle through the realities of a post-COVID-19 economy.

Check out the full description and RSVP for the virtual session.
