The United Nations Foundation present the second annual Social Good Summit. Held during UN week, the Summit is where big ideas meet new media to create innovative solutions.

The Summit unites a dynamic community of global leaders to discuss a big idea: the power of innovative thinking and technology to solve our greatest challenges.

The most innovative technologists, influential minds and passionate activists came together last week with one shared goal: to unlock the potential of new media and technology to make the world a better place.

Alec Ross serves as senior advisor for innovation to Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, where he is tasked with maximizing the potential of technology and innovation in service of America’s diplomatic goals and stewarding Secretary of State Clinton’s 21st Century Statecraft agenda. Alec Ross is being interviewed in the 2 minute video below after speaking at the Social Good Summit.

You’ll hear how you can have more influence than elites wearing $3,000 suits.

Previously, Ross served as the convener for Obama for America’s Technology, Media & Telecommunications Policy Committee and served on the Obama-Biden Presidential Transition Team.

In 2000, he and three colleagues co-founded the nonprofit organization One Economy and grew it in to the world’s largest digital divide organization, with programs on four continents. He was named the 2010 Middle East/North Africa Technology Person of the Year, cited by the Huffington Post as one of “10 Game Changers in Politics,” named a “game changer” as one of Politico’s “50 Politicos to watch” in 2010, and named one of 40 under 40 leaders in international development. Ross started his career as a sixth grade teacher through Teach for America in inner-city Baltimore where he lives with his wife Felicity and their three young children.
