Kayla Yang Best is a systems thinker with a drive to do the on-the-ground work in addressing some of the most pressing issues of our collective community today. With a broad range of experiences working in government, entrepreneurial and philanthropic sectors, she brings an informed perspective of changemaking.

Here we discuss:

 

-Humility as a tool for understanding the community better

-Doing the most good for the most people with the most people

-Cultivating the ability to mindfully choose which ideas we focus on

-Being an advocate for your own mission

-Making progress toward cross-sector collaboration on societal issues

-The providing of experiential perspectives through storytelling

-Developing a common language for which to talk about change
