2022 Innovation Exchange
May 19, 4:00 PM
An extraordinary in-person program with local innovators and visionaries.
MOHAI invites you to the 13th annual Innovation Exchange. The program will explore the pressing topics of environmental sustainability and the global climate crisis, and how these issues can be addressed. MOHAI will also highlight work from some of Seattle’s newest, leading-edge innovators.
An inciteful and provocative event, this year’s featured innovator:
Sally Jewell served as US Secretary of the Interior from 2013-17, following 8 years as CEO of outdoor retailer REI. Her 45-year career spanned engineering, banking, retail, government, and academia, all interconnected through her volunteer service. Jewell is currently the Fritzky Chair in Leadership for the University of Washington Foster School of Business and has focused her work over the last 20 years on aligning economic interests with environmental sustainability, with a particular interest in supporting the next generation of diverse leaders.
Innovation Exchange will be moderated by Chris Voorhees, President, and CEO of First Mode, and MOHAI Trustee.
Join the conversation with some of the key figures from leading institutions in the community, including:
- Lylianna Allala, Climate Justice Director – City of Seattle, Office of Sustainability & Environment, Co-founder of Growing Old Project
- Cody Birkland and Amy Swanson– ULTROPIA
- Esther Min, Ph.D. Clinical Assistant Professor – University of Washington, Department of Environmental and Occupational Health Sciences
- Brian Pinkard, Ph.D. Co-founder, and CTO – Aquagga Inc.
The Innovation Exchange is co-chaired by MOHAI Trustees Harald Becker, Maren Higbee and Hilary Laney. Proceeds from this annual fundraiser support MOHAI’s mission to highlight our regional tradition of innovation and imagination, including our K-12 education programs serving nearly 30,000 students, teachers, and families each year.
