Mr. Lee said, “Of the many lessons the pandemic is teaching us, two of the most important are that our systems aren’t designed on equitable access and that people can come together in novel ways to overcome those access challenges. I’m proud to be part of the Ignite Social Impact team, which is drawing on these lessons to provide a platform for people to unite around the best ideas and broaden participation in their benefits.”
