KIN Global Summit at Kellogg Open to All of Northwestern
‘Growth for Good’ theme meant to inspire and inform anyone with a big idea or burning passion
“Growth for Good” is the theme of the 2015 summit, which will be attended by delegates from 25 countries.
The event, open to interested Northwestern students, staff and faculty, will take place from 1 to 5 p.m. Thursday, May 28, at Pick-Staiger Concert Hall, 50 Arts Circle Drive on the Evanston campus.
From across the business spectrum and beyond, a lineup of dynamic speakers will share what it means to build and sustain a prosperous global society.
Registration is required, and seating is available on a first-come, first-served basis via online registration.
Speakers at the May 28 event include:
- Kellogg graduate Craig Kielburger, who runs a wildly successful nonprofit called “We Day,” dedicated to inspiring a generation of young people in Canada and the United States to give back through volunteerism.
- Howard Tullman, CEO of digital startup incubator 1871, recently honored with an award from the Illinois Humanities Council for fostering humanitarianism in business.
- Sophia Swire, co-founder of Learning for Life, a humanitarian group that has established more than 250 schools for girls in Pakistan, Afghanistan and India.
- Slava Rubin, co-founder and CEO of global crowd-funding platform, Indiegogo.
The Kellogg Innovation Network is a global community of innovators from across all sectors of society -- business, government, non-profits, the arts, academia and defense -- dedicated to nurturing prosperity through innovation.
“That’s ‘Growth for Good,’” said Kellogg Professor and KIN co-founder Robert C. Wolcott, “the focus of this year’s summit.”
