In her social innovation presentation, Serra Titiz implores the audience at Istanbul Sehir University to be the change they would like to see in the world.
The speaker shares her personal experience and how she became a social entrepreneur. She notes as a child she wanted to battle discrimination and felt personally involved in the problems of others. While young people and professionals might feel pressured to secure their future and work at a multinational corporation, her entire life changed after she received a job offer after volunteering at an NGO.
Her social innovation presentation discusses how innovation can mean finding a new solution to an old problem. She states anyone can be a social entrepreneur if they have a personal bond and relate to a problem, and have the passion to do something about it. Now is the time for social innovation, as one idea can serve the sustainable development of the world.
