Please join us for NYU's 12th Annual Social Innovation Symposium! We are excited to welcome Jorge Fontanez, CEO of B Lab, for a keynote conversation with Esi Seng, GM of Tom's of Maine.

This year’s theme, Innovation for Impact: How Crisis Drives World-Changing Ideas, will explore extraordinary responses to change and crisis. Whether faced with problems like a global pandemic, generational poverty, or the existential emergency of climate change, panelists will speak on how they’ve been able to design new solutions and foster unexpected optimism.
