    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.

    Combine the nimbleness of entrepreneurship with the solutions-driven framework of social ventures, and the result is the disruptive, effective and challenging career of the social entrepreneur. CIW sits down with four Bluhm/Helfand Social Innovation Fellows, all under the age of 35, who daily work to solve seemingly impossible global problems.

    What to expect: BlocPower’s Donnel Baird on lighting our nonprofits; EarthEnable’s Gayatri Datar on improving health through better flooring; Democracy Works’ Seth Flaxman on making voting better; Disease Diagnostic Group’s John R. Lewandowski on how to diagnose malaria in one second

    *This Conversation is presented by CareerBuilder.
