Free of charge to all viewers—sponsored by Living Cities.
While today it's conventional wisdom that major issues are far too complex and interconnected for any one entity to solve alone, many leaders and organizations continue to pursue their own agendas with isolated impact. At the same time, new digital media platforms and social networks have radically democratized the ways people produce, share and consume information. Yet our understanding of what it means to be a leader in this new, networked society has not kept pace.
Join leaders from the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Twitter, and Living Cities to understand how these trends are changing previous notions of leadership and learn more about ways your organization can harness new technologies to accelerate innovation, adaptation, and ultimately impact.
This webinar is complimentary to viewers, thanks to the generous sponsorship of Living Cities.

In nearly 20 years Living Cities members have collectively invested almost $1 billion, helping shape federal funding programs, redirecting public and private resources, and helping communities to build homes, stores, schools, community facilities and more.
