Seventeen underrepresented experts gathered today at the Impact Hub Los Angeles to explore themes of expertise, credibility and what it takes to create meaningful change in the world.
The program brought together scholars, physicians and social entrepreneurs from a wide range of organizations and institutions, including a former Idaho Lumberjack champion, a competitive jump-roper, an atheist choir singer, two sci-fi superfans, a woman whose childhood house can be seen in hundreds of scary movies and an anxiety-ridden analyst with an irrational fear of peach fuzz. These experts in the room are shaping the conversation around disparities in palliative care, recruiting women into computer science, creating sacred ritual theater and more.
