Smart and informative.
I watched the full panel discussion and was drawn to many points. One in particular was shared by Ms. Runner who discussed the need to gather with unlike minds in order to really push toward change and make a difference. It's one thing to "preach to the choir" but when you're able to come together, talk, LISTEN and then transform longstanding models of thinking in effort to reach common ground and implement positive solutions, that's powerful.
Looking forward to more of this series. Great job !
