We believe innovation and change happen when more people step up, ask questions and demand more. We want to ask the questions that others own’t and give a voice to those who have none. All of us are disruptors in our own way, coming from different backgrounds and striving to make real change. We’re convinced innovative thinking is needed in our government, our economy, and our society at large now more than ever. This podcast is an invitation for others to join us in the conversation and work towards building a better future.
