Emily Teitsworth, GirlVentures
Opportunities to build next generation leadership and connect online have exploded in recent years, while evidence continues to mount of the negative effects that screen time has on the development of empathy and collaboration skills in young people. Emerging research demonstrates that time in nature can counteract these challenges and serve as a powerful catalyst for leadership development. Panelists will discuss how investors and the social sector can bridge the divide between online movement building and outdoor education to accelerate youth leadership and develop new models for youth-centered investment.
