The Spring 2015 Social Visionary Speakers series will focus on the topic of investing in human life through education, job skills training and advocacy. In most conflict regions of the world people are typically viewed as more of a burden than an asset. Our panelists will discuss the ways they are making an impact to preserve the dignity at the individual level and how that in turn positively impacts the community in which these individuals live.
