WELL Entrepreneur: Community Conversations with Mark Fairbanks, Islands of Brilliance

February 23 @ 12:00 pm - 12:45 pm

Join us for a conversation on well-being and social innovation at our next Well Entrepreneur as we welcome Mark Fairbanks – Social Innovation Entrepreneur-in-Residence at the Lubar Entrepreneurship Center at UW Milwaukee, and the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Islands of Brilliance.

Islands of Brilliance utilizes project-based learning which allows neurodiverse students to grow their intrinsic capabilities and practice communication, increasing their likelihood of independence as adults.

When not occupied with IOB, he finds meaning and art spending time on the natural prairie and woodland gardens that surround the Fairbanks’ family home. His most cherished moments are around the dinner table with Margaret and their two boys, Charlie and Harry.


We look forward to seeing you!
