Meeting of the Minds
The first Meeting of the Minds took place in the coLabs space in Makati, Manila, with special thanks to Banjo Albano and Sarah Meier.
Ruby is the founder of Meeting of the Minds, a dot-connecting movement to galvanize the young Global Filipino community together to heal our home country of the Philippines. Aiming to unite our global Filipino community’s brightest minds, it is a community building forum, web platform, and TV/Media project that seeks to connect the most influential movers and shakers in order to build progress around focused causes that directly benefit the Philippines.
From Manila to Zurich, New York to London, San Francisco to Toronto, and many other global destinations, Meeting of the Minds builds a bridge between global Filipinos and local Filipinos, building conversations and action to impact positive social change in the Philippines. Each event includes guests from different global cities, “visiting” through video conference technology. The international dialogue and involvement is facilitated through Ustream, Twitter, and Facebook chats, allowing audiences to participate in each event no matter where in the world they may be.
To date, Meeting of the Minds has occurred at St. John’s University, UC Hastings, and De La Salle University. To bring Meeting of the Minds to your campus or venue, email Ruby.
