Elevating Impact Summit Reflections: Eric Dawson, Keynote
After having spent a terrific day with an inspiring group of entrepreneurs, investors, and thinkers at the Elevating Impact Summit at Portland State University, I am left with a few big questions:
- How do we increase the rate of innovation, failure, and learning while staying mindful to the human-scale at which our work gets lived?
- How do we work to change systems that are desperately in need of improvement — our prisoner re-entry process, early education investment, and capital markets for social enterprises to name a few — while not demonizing people within those systems who are often doing their very best?
- And how do we design and articulate inspiring sets of measurable impacts, while paying attention to those measures harder to quantify: hope, courage, love?
