This facilitated community-conversation will crowd-source and explore the multiple meanings and experiences of failure across diverse cultural contexts. Themes ranging from failing forward and productive failure to dominant narratives about failure will seed our conversation centered on the question, "who gets to fail?" in innovative and entrepreneurial spaces.
