Journeys: Stories of Aha! Moments

Thursday, June 20, 2013

Each of us who works to change the world is on a journey. And each of these journeys begins with a moment of discovery that, in time, becomes a story. "Journeys" is about bringing our stories to life – a special opportunity to hear from the Bay Area's leading change-makers and social entrepreneurs, reliving and retelling their Aha! moments. We'll hear how each was shaped by their discoveries and how those discoveries, in turn, are shaping the world. And along the way, we'll explore how stories work, sip some tea, and share our own journeys.
