events Partnering for change 2021

It’s time for the second session of Partnering for Change Talks - a virtual series curated by Reach for Change and powered by Danske Bank. This time the talk will dig deeper into “Tech as an enabler for social impact” and we are proud to announce Gitanjali Rao, the 15 year old scientist and innovator, as the main Keynote speaker.

 

This year, Reach for Change is bringing you a virtual series of thoughtful and inspiring talks on sustainability and innovation. During the series you will meet innovators, business leaders, and game changers that all have one thing in common. They want to contribute to a more sustainable world, and they all have new perspectives and inspiring ways to do so. 

 

Each talk this year zooms into a specific theme, and for the upcoming event on May 20th we will tackle the importance of tech as an enabler to accelerate social impact. We are proud to announce that this talk will feature Gitanjali Rao, the 15 year old scientist and innovator who last year was selected as the ‘Kid of the Year’ by TIME Magazine. Ever since second grade, Gitanjali has been thinking of ways to use science and technology to make the world a better place. In the years since, she has been credited with developing several innovative tech solutions for some of the world's most pressing issues, such as access to clean water and cyber-bullying. Gitanjali has also been honored as one of Forbes’ “30 under 30 in science”, a “Top Young Innovator” by TIME, and has also been acknowledged globally for her STEM workshops which have now successfully engaged over 46 000 students across four continents.
