On 27 May 2022, the Gandhi Centre once again held our successful 'Social Impact Day’, hosting industry experts, investors, academics, and ‘Ideas to Impact Challenge’ (i2i) teams to help us celebrate and discuss various elements of social impact through stimulating panel discussion and special guest speakers!
We hosted industry experts, investors, academics, and previous i2i finalists to kick off some inspiring discussion and explore how enterprise can have huge, positive social impact and address real global problems.
This year the theme of Social Impact Day was ‘Rebuilding Trust: Impacting the Future’, and within that theme we explored 'Mental Health and Hybrid Work', and 'Diversity and Technology' with some amazing industry experts, researchers and policy makers. We were also truly honoured to host Professor Stephen Curry and Lord Karan Bilimoria CBE, DL as keynote speakers. Click here to read the full news story.
Shortlisted i2i teams also produced and showcased their plans to positively impact one million lives in front of guests and an expert judging panel.
This year, we were very excited to hold the event in a 'hybrid' format, making it easy for people to join remotely, whilst finally being able to welcome guests back to Imperial after a long break.
