ICGC’s “Geodesigning the Future We Want” Cocktail Soiree




The Institute for Conscious Global Change (ICGC) held our First Annual Spring Cocktail Soiree on Friday, April 25th 2014. The event was hosted on the 19th Floor of the Tribeca Park building (400 Chambers St, Tribeca Park, NY, NY).  The gorgeous venue provided attendees with a beautiful outdoor terrace and a spectacular view of the city.


Titled, “Geodesigning the Future We Want”, the intimate meet and greet was attended by members of the organization, guests and long time supporters.


Attendees had a wonderful time as they sipped wine and snacked on delicious fingers foods while networking and discussing the organization’s work and our GIS based approach to sustainable development.  


The evening culminated with a message from ICGC’s CEO Ms. Etta Jackson, who’s message and affirmation of ICGC’s work and future, left the room engaged and excited about what is next to come.  


Ending on a high note, patrons left looking forward to the organization’s future work.


We look forward to future events and hope to see you all there as we strive to “Put Equity On The Map”.

Youth Assembly Panel


     ICGC recently attended the UN’s Annual Youth Assembly Conference as guests on the Youth Leadership and Academic Development panel.  The overall conference focused on Young Professionals, New Technology, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), and Social Entrepreneurship within the context of the United Nation’s Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).  The February 1st session outlined opportunities in the field for youth within the context of the MDGs.

     ICGC’s Chief Operating Officer Sienna J Dutkowski spoke on behalf of the organization. She shared her experiences in the development field and how through creating technologically innovative solutions to the world’s development challenges, ICGC is an example of a youth driven organization.  Other guest panelists included Joyce Moy, Professor at City University of New York’s (CUNY) & Executive Director of CUNY’s Asian American/Asian Research Institute and Cosmo Fujiyama, NYU Reynolds Fellow and co-founder of Students Helping Honduras. They delivered an equally powerful argument on youth empowerment and self-initiated action plans for change within development.  Overall, the session and the panel discussions were a tremendous success and it was evident that students left the room feeling reinvigorated and inspired.
