A Weekend of Technology, Innovation & Social Impact
Andrea Hoffman’s Culture Shifting Weekend is an annual invite only two-day convening that takes place in Silicon Valley and the Hamptons. It includes a Saturday Social Innovation Think Tank and Sunday Culture Shift Awards. Guests consist of a curated group of influential people of color, accomplished C-Suite executives, entrepreneurs and thought leaders who are carefully selected to attend in order to collaborate and tap into the social currency, intellectual and financial capital among leaders of the new economy (“diverse elite”).
SOCIAL INNOVATION "THINK TANK"
In partnership with Babson Social Innovation Lab
Culture Shift Labs Think Tanks facilitate the exchange of new ideas critical to innovation and solutions that turn challenges into growth opportunities. Throughout the session, our audience members are introduced to social impact methodologies (including Babson’s Entrepreneurial Thought & Action Methodology™) that deliver sustainable transformative solutions that can change belief systems, behaviors and outcomes. CSL Think Tanks are invite only and reflect a small curated group of senior leaders, drawn from our global proprietary database.
CULTURE SHIFT AWARDS
The Culture Shifting Awards was launched during the summer of 2010 in the Hamptons to recognize leaders and pioneers of diversity who have achieved success within their respective industries or those who have progressed the diversity agenda in America. This invite only event gathers over 150 accomplished leaders of color (the “diverse elite”) that are otherwise hard to reach and often, under the radar. Guests attend to celebrate the honorees for their contributions to business and society as well as to deal-make, find points of collaboration, and tap into the social currency, intellectual and financial capital among leaders of the new economy.
