bigBANG! is North Texas’ longest social impact event that convenes social innovators, community leaders, and business professionals for transformative dialogue and powerful action in our region.
For one week in October, bigBANG! will bring speakers from across the country and state to explore topics and action critical to racial, gender, and economic equity in our communities. The evidence of long-standing discrimination in our nation is clear. Disparities in income, wealth, community infrastructure, educational outcomes, health and incarceration rates all point to systems that better serve some groups and exclude others, particularly people of color and women. Join us virtually for Equity in Action: The Next 100 Years!
bigBANG! 2020 is presented by SVP Dallas and United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, co-produced with the Texas Women’s Foundation, the City of Dallas and the Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas, powered by The Dallas Foundation, with additional programming from IF/THEN (Lyda Hill Philanthropies). Statewide support from Bank of America. Our 2020 media partners are the Texas Tribune & KERA.
