Harness the power of Social media to bring about sustainable change.
Social Media's power to bring about social change is oftentimes written off as the "online version of drawing room conversation" or " "idle chatter" with no significant impact. So much so that the term ' slacktivist' is used for people who espouse causes online. This session aims to provide cases and concrete examples of why social media can create a positive, sustainable and measurable impact on development, gender and economic issues.
Rashmi Vallabhajosyula is (in no particular order ) slacktivist, entrepreneur, quizzer, writer, tilter@windmills. Her experience with the Society of Painted Dented Ladies of India, led to this particular epiphany.
