The Heart Series: A Conference For Social Impact Companies

Have Heart, Do Well

The Heart Series’ third annual conference was held on February 16-17 in West Los Angeles, bringing together yet another incredible lineup of social impact brands and thought leaders. We were honored to attend again this year, what a powerful and inspiring gathering of like-minded people!

The Event

Megan Sette and Gail Cayetano Classick co-founded The Heart Series with a vision to create a conference that was both intimate and ‘retreat-like’, and one that encouraged innovation and collaboration among social good entrepreneurs. Packed with meaningful content and group activities, the conference maintained a true sense of community that the founders have carefully fostered at each annual event.
