In April 2015, the founding chapter of SOA hosted an internationally broadcasted day-long summit, with approximately 500 participants in attendance. The event became a global foundation that enabled cross-sector conversation between leaders with expertise in fields of business, science, and policy. In combining education, resources, and collaborative opportunities, we aim to bridge the divide between the position of being students and being integral forces of change.
