While these initiatives play a vital role in driving dialogue, channeling resources and catalyzing action, they are often fraught with controversy and tension—particularly between top down and bottom up constituencies. Join leaders at the forefront of the most prominent global initiatives to prioritize and measure progress, along with social innovators who are working on the frontlines. Expect candid dialogue on how these efforts help, how they harm and how they can be improved. The Skoll World Forum on Social Entrepreneurship accelerates the impact of the world's leading social entrepreneurs by uniting them with essential partners in a collaborative pursuit of learning, leverage and large scale social change. http://www.skollworldforum.org The Skoll Foundation drives large-scale change by investing in, connecting, and celebrating social entrepreneurs and other innovators dedicated to solving the world's most pressing problems. http://www.skollfoundation.org
