Session Description:
Social networks, both digital and physical, and a sense of civic duty, are bringing community back to the neighborhood, driving positive social, business and political change. How is this power of the collective fueling our reawakening American cities? Why are our biggest tech companies so fascinated with civic life? And what motivates people to get engaged? Is encouraging empowerment part of the table stakes of successful tech business?
