A sample of KIN Summit Sessions:
Macro-Trend Breakout SessionsAll KIN participants break into small work groups to address one of the topics of the summit. Delegates identify implications and opportunities of key macro-trends and share strategies for engaging senior leadership, collaborating with colleagues and motivating teams in increasingly complex, geographically and functionally distributed environments.
KIN PrizeNorthwestern University students bring fresh ideas, boldness and rigor necessary to solve tough challenges—from healthcare to plastic waste. Student teams compete to become one of four KIN Prize finalists. During the working sessions, delegates share expertise and help refine students’ ideas. The teams then pitch to the KIN Global audience and each delegate is given $500 to allocate to the best idea for positive impact.
Mission MatchA platform for collaboration, KIN Global encourages delegates to bring their missions to the summit. During the first day, groups of five delegates will be given five minutes each, helping make connections with people who can move forward each delegate’s goals.
