Named by CNN as one of the top 7 Heroes to watch in 2015, Kathryn Myronuk is a leading expert on exponentially growing technologies and the synthesis of ideas at the core of accelerating change. Her focus is the application of new capabilities made possible with technology to the Sustainable Development Goals and to social entrepreneurship activities.
