Compass conference logoThree members of Scientific American‘s editorial staff are joining the conversation this week at the Compass Summit, a conference created to help leaders focus on global challenges and economic opportunities facing their organizations and society. The conference is designed to build on last year’s Techonomy conference in Lake Tahoe.

Compass was organized by a team that includes Brent Schlender, a long-time foreign correspondent at Fortune and The Wall Street Journal; Peter Petre, former executive editor at Fortune; and Carolyn Jones and Michael Christman, co-founders of the 100 People Foundation.

Participants from Scientific American, a partner in the conference, include Editor in Chief Mariette DiChristina (@mdichristina), Executive Editor Fred Guterl (@fredguterl) and Editorial Product Manager Angela Cesaro (@aecesaro), who is live tweeting the proceedings from Palos Verdes, Calif.
