From exploring the effects of logging in the Amazon to mapping the refugee and genocide crises in Darfur, Google Earth Outreach supports non-profits, communities and indigenous peoples around the world by applying Google's mapping tools to the world's pressing problems.

Rebecca Moore joined Google in 2005, where she conceived and now leads the Google Earth Outreach program and Google Earth Engine.

Through her leadership at Google, Moore has shown how technology can play an integral role in the sustainability of many indigenous cultures. At the Social Good Summit, she will share what she has learned and ways that other organizations can make the best use of Google’s mapping technologies.
