Given by Alexander Shermansong, CEO of Civic Consulting USA
Alexander raised and deployed $100 million pro bono in projects in Chicago and is starting similar effort in NYC:

• 80% increase in graduation: With five pro bono partners, City Colleges of Chicago designed and launched the Reinvention plan

• 25% reduction in wait time: County health clinics cut patients' wait time as part of system-wide transformation undertaken with 70 individuals donating $3 million in service

• 51% reduction in youth violence: Consulting, foundation, and university partners helped design a summer program with long-term behavior improvements for youth at the highest risk of being involved in violence.

He will share successful strategies and tactics to:

• Engage companies in pro bono work

• Raise funds

• Manage cross-company teams toward societal outcomes

• Work effectively with government and public sector leaders

Alexander will also share his insight on NYC civic hacking opportunities. He is looking for collaboration in consulting, programming, design, and other fields.
