Host and Common Impact CEO Danielle Holly is joined by Marcy Scott Lynn, Facebook’s Director of Global Impact Partnerships and a member of nonprofit Camp Tawonga’s Board of Directors. Marcy has scaled Facebook’s social impact work through the implementation of several CSR projects, including rolling out the Safety Check feature, which in the wake of natural and man-made disasters lets users alert their friends and family that they’re safe. Marcy shares that the underlying intention for Safety Check was to find ways to bring people together and leverage human connection to build resiliency. Danielle and Marcy also discuss the importance of unlikely partnerships and working together toward a common North Star, being engaged in our local communities and what it truly means to “think global, act local.”
