We Can All Be Movement Starters: Jennifer Dulski, the head of Facebook Groups & Community, and author of the new book Purposeful: Are You a Manager or a Movement Starter?  has been a startup founder, a tech executive, and president of Change.org. She has been the mastermind making change in both the business and activism worlds. And though they may seem diametrically opposed in their missions and methods, Dulski argues that the best leaders in both fields share one crucial trait: they lead movements.

Drawing on stories of leaders from both business and social change during a very exclusive Watermark evening, Jennifer will walk through the common steps that all successful movement starters take from creating a clear & compelling vision, to mobilizing people around that vision, navigating criticism, and leveraging the naysayers. Whether you're at a startup or a Fortune 500 company, are championing a cause internally at your organization or fighting for change in your broader community, Jennifer will show that everyone has the power to be a movement starter and change the world.

Prior to Facebook, Jennifer was president & COO of Change.org. She was also an early Yahoo! employee and led a business unit there as group VP and GM of Local and Marketplaces.
