Singapore - social impact

Context

On the 19 of September 2020, NUS Conjunct Consulting hosted Social Impact Day, a new flagship event that was wholly virtual, aimed at bringing social impact partners and practioneers together. The target of SID was to have a critical conversation in 3 key areas: Climate Change, Inequality and Youth-At-Risk.

The team brought together a total of 14 subject matter experts, from academics to executive leadership of social organisations and on-the-ground individuals to have a comprehensive conversation on these pertinent issues. With the total number of signups reaching over 200, we would like to congratulate the SID team for a successful event. One can view the recorded panels and infographic summaries of the key events below.
