Global Conference 2016

Leaders understand that to solve our most serious problems, they must join forces with other like-minded people who are prepared to use their influence for good. The water crisis in Flint, Mich., is a case in point. Iconic singer and actress Cher teamed up with Mayor Karen Weaver to bring more than 180,000 bottles of water to the city, and they've continued to use their influence to keep the national spotlight on the issue. But many feel that the problem in Flint is just the tip of the iceberg -- that other communities throughout the United States are also at risk due to pipe corrosion and decaying infrastructure. Join us for a powerful discussion about leadership, activism and what it takes to be a change-maker.
