Closing: Your Commitments, Our Community
One more dose of inspiration as we wrap Day 1 - The Tale of Iteration reminds us that the pursuit of impact is fueled by ongoing experimentation. We’ll synthesize takeaways, share SFi’s priorities & crystallize your commitments in the next phase of movement building.
We’ll collect your commitments to action for the next 3-6 months, with your accountability partner from the day, which SFi will carry into future dialogue.
What will your story be? Our collective story? How will Asian families lead the way for the next decade of sustainable development, staying authentic to our stakeholders and setting a new standard for the world?
