Filipino-American presents at TedxSan Diego
The Filipino-American Chamber of Commerce of San Diego is proud to announce and promote the TEDxSanDiego video presentation by past President, Mr. Bennett Peji, Senior Director of Marketing at Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation. Watch and listen to his elevating talk, "Diversity, and inclusion empower community-centered design".
Everyone should play a role in the success of their city, as well as their local neighborhood, which means that development of those communities requires residents to be at the table when important decisions are being made. This approach to community centered design requires all voices to be welcomed, and listened to. In this way, new and more diverse solutions can be arrived at, and local residents are thus empowered to take control of their future. Bennett Peji is Senior Director at the Jacobs Center for Neighborhood Innovation. He directs the local economy initiative, branding, marketing, community affairs and communications work. He is also an international brand consultant, designer and frequent speaker on community-centered design. Peji serves on the boards of California Humanities, the University of San Diego Center for Peace and Commerce, and the La Jolla Playhouse and served as a Commissioner of Arts & Culture for the City of San Diego. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at https://www.ted.com/tedx
