The Community Foundation for Northern Virginia hosts The Innovation Breakfast Series to bring a fresh perspective on the challenges and opportunities facing our region and the role that innovation and philanthropy can play in addressing them. 

WHEELS Global FoundationWe are partnering with the WHEELS Global Foundation for this Innovation Breakfast Series event titled, "Reviving the Dream: Designing Technology for Social Wellbeing." In the mid 20th Century, many believed emerging technologies would eradicate poverty, hunger, and sickness and build a more just and sustainable world.  Anything seemed possible! But in the intervening decades, technology took a sharp turn away from addressing social challenges. Today, that dream is being revived.  Across the globe, sustainable technologies are being developed and reimagined to help meet basic human needs, address social injustices, and create more balanced and prosperous communities. The WHEELS Global Foundation headquartered in Reston, VA, is on the forefront of this important work.  What is the opportunity for our community – for all communities -  to benefit, and what role does philanthropy play in promoting technology that advances social wellbeing?

We welcome speakers David Heyman, co-founder of Smart City Works; Brian Komar, VP, Community Engagement, Salesforce.org; and Suresh Shenoy, EVP, Alyx Technologies, and President, WHEELS Global Foundation.
