Support Structures for Today’s Social Entrepreneurs ~ Willy Foote, Root Capital & Rodrigo Baggio, Center for Digital Inclusion (Skoll Awardees & Co-Founders, Tendrel) | CLASSROOM 1

How can the social entrepreneur community increase effectiveness and connectedness in our work as leaders, in our organizations, and within the field? In small groups, try using a powerful Forum methodology adapted from Young President's Organization (YPO) and Entrepreneur's Organization (EO) to discuss personal or professional challenges, and support shared learning and experiences that can help address them. What support systems are necessary for leading social entrepreneurs – presidents, founders, and CEOs – and how can we deepen our impact in a shifting geopolitical landscape across the globe?

Locally-Led Solutions in Africa ~ Andy Bryant & Katie Bunten-Wren, Segal Family Foundation | SEMINAR ROOM 8

Are locally-led organizations the best placed to devise contextual and sustainable solutions to local challenges? The Segal Family Foundation’s African Visionary Fellowship drives resources to local visionaries and their regional or national organizations across East Africa. With tailored capacity support and a formal investment vehicle, can we increase impact for underserved communities in Sub-Saharan Africa? Help us workshop this funding model!

The Unfinished Social Entrepreneur ~ Jonathan C. Lewis, Author + Katherine Knotts, Red Press | SEMINAR ROOM 9

What does it take to survive burnout as a social entrepreneur? Are core values enough when the going gets tough? When change happens slowly, how do we keep our perspective? React to a reading of Jonathan’s new book, The Unfinished Social Entrepreneur, coming out this summer and join a lively discussion facilitated by the editor & publisher!

Sustainable Community-Based Models in Mental Healthcare ~ Chris Underhill, BasicNeeds & mhNOW | SEMINAR ROOM 10

How do you integrate mental well-being and concern for good mental health into your work? The U.S. has a widening 50% mental health gap and sub-Saharan countries like Nigeria have as much a 90% mental health gap. How can we work to deliver more mental health practice to those who need it?
