    CONVERSATION - Conversations are panel discussions that provide an in-depth, up-to-the-minute look at a single topic. Featuring three to four thought leaders and an expert moderator, Conversations consist of a 60-minute discussion, followed by 15 minutes of audience q-and-a.

    Young entrepreneurs around the globe are constantly finding ways to solve the world’s problems. The Bluhm/Helfand Social Innovation Fellows—with support from Chicago Ideas—put this into practice, using their work to address global challenges. In this Conversation, we’ll bring back former BHSI Fellows to hear about their journeys and learn what’s next.
