Aidmatrix President & CEO Governor Scott McCallum had the opportunity to speak on a prestigious panel during the 2013 InterAction Forum in Washington D.C on April 30, 2013. The panel was titled "Innovation Drivers in Relief and Development", and was a UPS-InterAction CEO Roundtable Event. Led by remarks from Daniel J. Brutto, President of UPS International, the panel was moderated by Kathy Spahn, President and CEO of Helen Keller International. Lisa Nitze, Managing Director of Mission Measurement and Dr. Mirza Jahani, CEO of Aga Khan Foundation USA served alongside Gov. McCallum on the panel.

Panel Description: Innovation has become a buzz word in many sectors, including development, and the word is most often used interchangeably with technology.  But, innovation is also evident in new ways that individuals, groups and even bureaucracies work together (or not) in response to a very fluid and dynamic environment.  This session will explore how NGOs and corporations, along with other partners, are and can continue to be drivers of innovation.
