AzLA 2017 Keynote Speaker: Hildy Gottlieb

Posted By Danielle Angerbauer, Wednesday, April 19, 2017

Hildy Gottlieb is a social scientist and asker of powerful questions. She is the co-founder and Chief Boundary Pusher at Creating the Future, a 10-year experiment to answer the question, “If people everywhere are asking the kinds of questions that bring out the best in themselves and those around them, how much more humane could the world be?”


In addition to her role at Creating the Future, Hildy is a speaker and consultant, helping organizations and companies bring out the best in their own situation, reaching for what is possible inside and outside their own four walls.


Hildy is a TEDx speaker, as well as a contributor to  The Huffington Post, and the Stanford Social Innovation Review. She is also the creator and host of the Making Change podcast, where she has interviewed leaders from around the world about the factors that create powerful, positive change.


All Hildy’s work is rooted in a combination of research and practical experience, built upon her decades as a consultant, a social scientist, and a serial social entrepreneur. Hildy helped develop the current Masters degree program in Community Leadership at Duquesne University (pron. Dew-cáyne), where she and her partner, Dimitri Petropolis, have taught as professors. The team also co-founded the world’s first Diaper Bank, sparking the diaper banking movement across North America, and garnering them a Points of Light Citation from President Bill Clinton. 


Hildy’s best-selling books on the nuts and bolts of social change have all become industry standards and are used as texts in both undergraduate and graduate programs around the world. 


When not working, Hildy can be found in the garden, at the movies, shooting photos, or traveling the world in search of a quiet cafe to write. (Bio pulled from Hildy's website)


Hildy will help us to Change the Questions, Change the World at the AzLA 2017 Annual Conference Keynote stage the morning of Thursday, October 26th!
