Event description

Description

Creating a better world requires new ways of tackling old challenges. At Peace Innovators, six of USD's thought leaders will share their stories about the impact they’re witnessing in the field, the insights they're gleaning, and their ideas for bringing us closer to solving the world's most important and difficult problems.

Over the course of the evening, you will hear from the following presenters, each sharing a unique perspective to further your understanding of peace today and where it's heading.

  • Social + Technical = Peace | To promote peace, we must take a holistic approach which recognizes that social and technical are inextricably linked.
    Presentation by Gordon Hoople, Assistant Professor of Integrated Engineering

  • Innovate with Compassion | What can we do to include the lens of compassion when we think of innovations in business?
    Presentation by Priya Kannan-Narasimhan, Associate Professor of Management and Faculty Director of Torero Ventures

  • The Facts of Change | In an allegedly post-truth world, what role do facts have in creating change?
    Presentation by Andrew Blum, Executive Director of the Joan B. Kroc Institute for Peace and Justice

  • Building Peace You May Never See | We architect our buildings to last for generations, and we should do the same with our visions for peace.
    Presentation by Michael Fryer, Professor of Practice

  • UndocuAllies: Inclusion in an Age of Exclusion | In an era of profound political uncertainty for undocumented youth, institutions of higher education have a powerful role to play in providing support and inclusion.
