Giovanni Rodriguez

Giovanni Rodriguez is an award-winning consultant, author, and public speaker on organizational leadership and social technology. He is co-founder and CEO of SocialxDesign, a consulting firm based in Silicon Valley and Washington DC, and a regular contributor to Forbes, where he gained an international audience covering multicultural trends in business and government. His recent clients include The White House, the Democratic National Committee, the US Department of Education, the US Department of Health and Human Services, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, the AARP, and Morehouse College, one of the nation's leading historic black colleges and alma mater to Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Working closely with a team of researchers based at Stanford University, his firm has developed a new approach to community engagement called social design, which enables organizations to grow and sustain themselves more effectively by empowering the constituencies they serve (increasingly defined by culture, age, and gender).

Giovanni shares what his firm has learned in his speaking and in his writing. In addition to his work for Forbes, he is co-author of an upcoming book on the peaceful and sustainable development of urban environments in 21st-century multicultural America.
