APTE collaboration with the Marion Correctional Institution and the WinWin Institute
Motivated by a recent TEDx inside the prison, this year APTE will be exploring the role of social entrepreneurship in finding employment for ex-offenders. This special segment will address the challenges faced by formerly incarcerated individuals, highlight successful programs and stories, and create a vision for the future that calls each attendee to action. Led by Jo Dee Davis (biography below), this segment will feature video productions with current inmates and live talks from entrepreneurial ex-offenders.
APTE Water Talk
One in six people do not have access to improved water sources. 2.5 billion people live without basic sanitation. 88% of deaths from diarrhea, the world’s leading cause of illness and death, are attributable to inadequate availability of water.
How can we solve this issue that stymies growth and creates generational poverty? APTE is teaming with the Pure Water Access Project to educate attendees on the context of the issue, feature innovative solutions to clean water access, and lead a panel discussion focused on the future state of water access around the world.
