Guest Speaker: Healing and Impact: The Convergence of Community and Innovation

May 26, 2020 2:30pm ‐ May 26, 2020 3:15pm

Innovation is a process to improve the human condition; innovation can heal. Drawing on his experience building communities around the world, Travis Sheridan, chief community Officer at Wexford Science + Technology, discusses how knowledge communities, broadly defined, can have greater impact when operating outside of silos and increasing the level of cross-discipline collaboration. To foster innovation and healing, the key is to allow communities to maintain a sense of identity while exhibiting porous boundaries—the right community at the right time to achieve the right impact. Join Sheridan to hear his perspectives on fostering innovation and healing through community building.
