While the 2020 Skoll World Forum is cancelled due to health and safety concerns related to the COVID-19 pandemic, we remain committed to building, supporting, and strengthening ties in our network.
Join us as we take parts of Skoll Week online to explore this year’s theme, Collective Strength. We’re open-sourcing a public calendar of virtual events, facilitating digital networking, and streaming the 2020 Skoll Awards for Social Entrepreneurship.
Here are ways to participate in the reimagined week:
It’s time to come together as a community and explore how to build more resilient companies.
On May 19, over 200 CEOs will gather virtually to share their lessons, experience, and challenges they’ve come through. Unfortunately, a new norm will be more low-probability, high chaos events – additional outbreaks, climate disruption, and associated social unrest. The virtual summit will explore the concept of resiliency and how to build a company that can recover and adjust easily to change.
While coronavirus is separating us at the moment, this virtual summit will be a welcomed opportunity to connect, engage and come together as a community of real leaders who are using business as a force for good.
While coronavirus is separating us at the moment, this crisis demonstrates how interconnected we really are to one another, our communities, and the planet. That’s something impact investors have recognized for years.
