Neela Saldanha draws on more than a decade of personal experience applying behavioral science interventions in both the private and social sectors to examine ways in which scientists can better enact real and lasting change.

Saldanha will explore foundational questions for practitioners:

  • What are the intent-action barriers to organizations adopting behavioral science?
  • Can behavioral interventions scale?
  • Can we do better by turning the behavioral science lens inwards, to ourselves and our organizations to ensure interventions are adopted and have an impact?

Event Schedule

  • 5:30-6pm – Reception with hors d’oeuvres & drinks
