In February, the Speak Social team took part in the first-ever, citywide Work From Home Day and it was a HUGE success! Not only did the Governor’s Office, City of Austin, County departments, Dell, and many other fantastic Austin groups participate, but we also flooded the news with support for our initiative.
Now here comes SXSW, and Social Good Summit Austin is working together with The World Food Program and the UN Foundation to present a Day of Good. Different speakers will present throughout the day on what their teams are working on to get our world back on the right track!
Our President, Brad Bogus will be presenting on belhalf of Social Good Summit Austin, along with Christine Cox of Andris Media and Jessica Tunon of Beyond2Narture … two of our favorite SGS Austin partners.
GoodxGlobal is a first-ever day of events dedicated to the local and global power of social good, technology and entrepreneurship.
On March 10th, Social Good Summit Austin, World Food Program USA and the United Nations Foundation will host a day of tightly programmed discussions, talks, breakouts, and mentoring at the City of Austin’s beautiful, LEED Gold certified City Hall, just five blocks from the Austin Convention Center.
GoodxGlobal is presented in collaboration with Social Good Summit Austin (www.socialgoodsummitaustin.org) a group of volunteers in the Austin tech scene who came together to do something good for the community, environment and world.
With growing attendance from both local and international nonprofits, social entrepreneurs and startups, GxG will convene these communities in Austin with a day of relevant programming, while also supporting expanded representation from Africa and other developing regions at this seminal conference.
From work to solve global challenges like access to food, health, education and clean water, to local Austin organizations creating global impact, GoodxGlobal will showcase tech-driven approaches to aid effectiveness, mobile innovation, women’s empowerment, global North-South digital campaigning, social entrepreneurship in action, impact funding for good and more.
GxG will create an opportunity to organically engage, learn and connect together in Austin and the day’s events will also be live-streamed to a global audience online.
