Dallas always has to do things bigger, and we did it again by hosting the largest Billion+ Change conference in the country! On January 23rd, Dallas showed up in a BIG way to recognize business and civic leaders who are tackling critical community needs through skills-based volunteerism. The 10th in a series of these conferences implemented by the Points of Lights Foundation across the country, EFNT was thrilled to host over 130 business and nonprofit leaders at Communities Foundation of Texas as Mayor Mike Rawlings, George P. Bush, Chef Dean Fearing and executives from Deloitte, Capital One, American Airlines, AT&T, IBM and others spoke about the power of pro-bono.
This event served as a catalyst for five EFNT Memeber Companies, including Insite Interactive, SevaYatra, Executives in Action, Social Impact Architects and GeoWhiz Universe, to take the Billion + Change pledge to create or expand a skills-based volunteer program in their workplace. As Doug Levy, CEO of MEplusYOU said at the event, we are "building a cathedral" together, and together, we can inspire the largest commitment of corporate pro-bono service in history.
