“Now I get it!”

Social enterprise, social innovation, social capital how do you make sense of all the social hype? Today, it seems that you can add the adjective “social” to pretty much every business term and instantly create a new “social movement.” Kriss Deiglmeier is the expert who can make sense of the whole social innovation space.

Kriss Deiglmeier has guest lectured at the Stanford Graduate School of Business, University of California Berkeley, Hitotsubashi University, Kyoto University, Kyushu University, and Nagoya University. She co-authored the article “Rediscovering Social Innovation,” which defines social innovation for the field and studies the conditions that enable social and environmental change in the world. Her work at the Center for Social Innovation at the Stanford Graduate School of Business focuses on understanding and supporting cross-sector partnerships that are critical for social innovations to thrive. Her work also delves into identifying and fostering the leadership skills necessary to drive social change in a complex, cross-sector environment. Under Deiglmeier’s leadership, the Stanford Social Innovation Review magazine published the article Innovating the White House by Michele Jolin, which Sonal Shah, head of the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation, credits for being the source of inspiration for the launch of this new department.

We are excited to announce that Kriss Deiglmeier will be joining us on May 14 and look forward to hearing about ways to engineer social innovation.

We will be livestreaming TEDx Silicon Valley on May 14th. Join us here.
