EPIC provided an opportunity to engage with others from an interdisciplinary perspective, which allowed me to think about my personal and professional life from new angles. The unplugged component made a significant difference, as it encouraged more conversation and opportunities for 'pause'. I left with actionable ideas.

Loved how education, entrepreneurship and entertainment were unfolded at a very high level and in playful ways. It provided access to 'other worlds' and ways of thinking--clearly showing lots of similarities too where ideas can cross-pollinate. Super, super, inspiring.

It was such an honor to receive the EPIC Innovation Award for Community Engagement. Being recognized by some of the most intelligently creative people, gathered for the sole purpose of stimulating ideas and answers was a humbling experience.
