2011 Social Good Summit
“Conversation Starter and Sneak Peek”

Conference Call Briefing and Q&A

A year ago, the first-ever Social Good Summit changed the global conversation about social media and global issues during UN Week in New York. The Social Good Summit brought together a worldwide audience to connect and discuss the power of innovative thinking, social media and technology to help solve our greatest challenges.

Just one week before the kick-off of the second annual Social Good Summit, representatives from each of the partner organizations -- Mashable, 92nd Street Y, and the United Nations Foundation – will join R to Z Media Founder, Randi Zuckerberg, to jump-start the conversation with an exclusive “sneak peek” of the event for bloggers and journalists.

This informal conversation will be a chance for people to learn exciting news related to the Social Good Summit, the agenda, recently added speakers, and what people are saying about this year’s event.

Tweet your questions and your ideas about the conversation to @socialgood or using the hashtag #socialgood. Details of the conversation will be posted on
