    The Ripple Effect: Catalyzing Change Through Leadership

    Solving the complex challenges of today’s society requires a new approach to collaboration, creativity, problem-solving, and team-based effectiveness. It is imperative for leaders to, not only demonstrate these skills, but create legacy ripple effects of innovation that lead to transformative impacts within organizations and industries. Through a study of three key areas of leadership, this discussion will engage leaders of all levels on the internal and external tools that are key in maximizing impact and catalyzing change.

    Participants will:

    • Enhance understanding of how managing risk, creativity, and resiliency influences leadership effectiveness
    • Gain insights on how personal leadership styles drive innovation and creative thinking
    • Build and leverage strategic networks that support effective and lasting “ripples”
    • Implement personal leadership strategy.


    Summer Wright Collins serves as Associate Vice President of Design and Innovation at the C1 Innovation Lab which services Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Illinois, Texas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Montana plans by reimagining new products that support the individual journeys toward health and well-being. Summer is a thought-provoking executive leader that creates solutions to intractable business problems using the power of data, technology, and design.

    An epidemiologist by training, Summer holds a wide range of experience in research, data science, design, quality improvement, population health informatics, and community health. Prior to her role at the C1, Summer served as vice president of a pediatric health system, in which she was responsible for the population health informatics platform, analytics team, measurement and strategy, as well as the virtual health functions. She has held prior leadership roles in consulting, information technology, analytics, and population health management.

    Beyond health care innovation and design, Summer is particularly committed to eliminating health disparities, specifically within the area of maternal and child health. Additionally, she has a passion for growing a talented and diverse pipeline of future women leaders in the health care space.
