Social innovation and social justice with Cheryl Dorsey and Peter Drobac

In the first episode of series three of the Leadership in Extraordinary Times series, Peter Drobac and Cheryl Dorsey explore how innovation and justice are key to building a better future after Covid-19.

In conversation with Peter Drobac, Director of the Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, Cheryl Dorsey, President of social impact organisation Echoing Green, talked about how social innovators are drawn to address the root causes of these crises and ‘treat the system rather than the symptoms.’

Peter and Cheryl are both doctors working to treat society’s greatest challenges. They discuss the entangled crises of the pandemic and inequality, recent events in Washington DC, and why the world needs social entrepreneurs now more than ever.
