2021 Theme: Individuals for Impact
The global pandemic, although bringing unprecedented challenges, has also given us innovative opportunities to transform the world for the better. Creativity, adaptability, and resiliency have saved businesses from going under. If one thing has been made evident over the past year, it is the astonishing power of individuals. As consumers, individuals have been given the great, unwritten responsibility of influencing how businesses are run through choosing where to purchase, and choosing which businesses to give their publicity. As intrapreneurs in their organizations, individuals provide a continuous push for fresh, unfamiliar ideas that force their businesses to adapt.
Lang students possess the unquestionable belief that they have the ability to positively impact society, socially and economically. We believe that each person has the potential to help improve life in their communities, both locally and abroad. With sustainability in the foreground, and the interconnectivity and innovative drive created by social media and technological advancements, opportunities are plentiful to continue to develop a sustainable and future-ready world.
