When #LoveWins: How to Sustain a Viral Movement

Saturday, 3/12, 5pm, Hilton Austin

Because “going viral” sometimes feels a little more like winning the lottery than cracking a code, it’s easy to be left wondering, “What’s next?” Many of the year’s most popular movements — including our own Love Has No Labels — were left shocked by success, and learned quickly how to keep the momentum going.

Panelists Include: R/GA, Upworthy and Unilever.

Beat the Bully: Bring Light to Darkness on the Web

Saturday, 3/12, 11am, Hilton Austin

The internet creates bullies — but it also creates heroes. Come hear how online bullying is being addressed from different perspectives: victims, bullies, influencers, creators, brands and platforms. We promise to touch and to inspire, but, mostly importantly, to provide a roadmap for bringing light to your corner of the web.

Panelists Include: Lizzie Velasquez, Google and HelpsGood.

Media: The Key to Driving Social Impact

Monday 3/14, 12:30pm, JW Marriott

CSR is a key part of today’s business model. With more companies embracing the value of doing well and doing good, digital media companies will share how they are using their platforms to help raise awareness around important social issues.

Panelists Include: Pandora, Kik and LinkedIn.
