xChange is born from a desire to see equality and opportunity locally, nationally and globally. xChange is an annual event that brings leaders together from across the world to spark lasting, profound change. More than merely acknowledging inequality, xChange exists to challenge it head-on and empower participants to catalyze systemic change that can create a thriving and sustainable world. At xChange 2017, we are calling on you to explore your role in transforming the systems that intolerably and systematically leave some of us behind.
EQUALITY IN ACTION
How do you measure equality? What does equality mean around the world?The theme for xChange 2017, Equality in Action, continues the discussions from xChange 2016. Attendees will discuss these questions and others during the conference. By examining case studies and previous works and hearing from sector leaders,you will leave with the tools you need to turn your ideas into actions—actions that will positively impact local and global communities.
We will invite participants to advance principles of equality by:
unlocking the potential of the engineering profession to tackle some of the world’s most pressing challenges;
reimagining aid and social finance; and
building tools to enable community level impact.
xChange 2017: Equality in Action is the national annual conference of Engineers Without Borders, a non-governmental organization that strives to create a world free from poverty and inequality, where everyone can reach their full potential.
