Through her leadership at Google, Moore has shown how technology can play an integral role in the sustainability of many indigenous cultures. At the Social Good Summit, she will share what she has learned and ways that other organizations can make the best use of Google’s mapping technologies.
Moore will join other world leaders at the Mashable Social Good Summit, taking place Sept. 22-24 in New York City. Last week, we announced that Oscar winner Forest Whitaker will also join the Social Good Summit.
