Said Business School

An accelerating pandemic, widening inequality and racial injustice. A great democracy teetering. It’s all a bit bleak. But there are green shoots of possibility, and that’s where social entrepreneurs come in. Cheryl Dorsey has been a trailblazer in this movement. As CEO of Echoing Green, she is cultivating a generation of changemakers working across sectors to build a better world. An entrepreneur herself, Cheryl has served in two U.S. Presidential administrations and has long been a powerful advocate for racial justice and equity in business and philanthropy.

This event will be hosted by Dr Peter Drobac, Director of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship. Cheryl and Peter will discuss the entangled pandemics of Covid-19 and inequality, recent events in Washington DC, and why the world needs social entrepreneurs now more than ever.
