If you have been paying attention to the Social Media Week programming, you probably know that on February 14, 2012 Cisco has planned a day of events with some of the leading voices in social media. Cisco’s GETideas.org team is adding to this roster with a mid-day panel, “#SMLuvsSocialGood”. 

This panel will focus on how organizations are using social media for their social good efforts. From raising awareness and funds to activation and coordination; social good has found its voice in social media. Panelists will offer a multi-faceted perspective and key-takeaways that will help your next social good effort. If you are interested in leveraging social media for greater social good, this is a panel you won’t want to miss!
 
Sitting on the panel will be:
Karla Ballard (One Economy, moderator)- Karla Ballard is the Chief of Strategic Development – Media and National Partnerships, managing partnership relationships on behalf of One Economy’s corporate partners like Comcast/NBC, Teach for America, City Year and others.  She will bring a unique perspective to the typical corporate viewpoint.
 
Jason Falls (Social Media Explorer) -- Jason Falls is an author, speaker and CEO, the latter of Social Media Explorer, an education and information products company focused on digital and social media marketing. He will bring a practitioners perspective to the panel.
 
Mary Anne Petrillo (Cisco)- Mary Anne is a seasoned marketing professional and at the forefront of innovative online education marketing programs within the Cisco Corporate Social Responsibility. Working on such projects as www.ATC21S.org, and most recently serving as executive producer of www.getideas.org, she has a unique angle on leveraging social media for social good within a large enterprise.
 
Evan Steiner (HUB Ventures) -- Evan Steiner manages a myriad of projects for the Hub Bay Area, a purpose-driven collaborative workspace with over 1,000 members in San Francisco and Berkeley that is connected to 30 other locations through the global Hub network. Evan has a unique community level perspective that is not to be missed.
 
If you are in the San Francisco/San Jose area, plan to attend the live event – if not, watch it on the Cisco UStream channel. The panels will be watching the #SMWCisco hash tag (as opposed to the general #SMWSF hashtag) so the U-stream audience can interact with the panel along with the live audience.
