36 changemaker Q&As, and counting!

36 changemaker Q&As, and counting!

// By Jacqueline Brennan

Since February, we’ve been reaching out to some of our Upswell registrants and giving them the chance to introduce themselves to the Upswell community with a short Q&A. Many have taken us up on the opportunity, and with Upswell LA less than two weeks away, responses are still rolling in!

We took stock of all the changemakers we’ve gotten to feature so far through these Q&As, and listed them here with links to their responses, in the order we’ve shared them. Check them out before joining them in Los Angeles this November 14-16!
