Special Guest Biography:

Aaron Bean is a passionate social entrepreneur with a history of building systems for community good. As Managing Partner of Asemio, a social enterprise headquartered in Tulsa, OK, he leads a team of technologists and consultants who are working to address complex, systemic problems facing our communities. 

From 2001-2007, he led technology teams focused on catalyzing the economic growth of the Cherokee Nation. Aaron left the Cherokee Nation to join Fortune 500 technology company EMC, where he developed an international growth strategy for its then-newly acquired platform, Avamar. 

In 2009, he joined the U.S. Peace Corps and spent two years in Kazakhstan volunteering with people with disabilities. In Kazakhstan, he produced a national festival focused on celebrating deaf culture, created the first-ever Russian Sign Language music video, and developed a curriculum for teaching sign language to the parents of deaf children. 

In 2013, Aaron co-founded Asemio, which he has grown into a national network of technology and data systems that combine science, human story, and collaborative action to improve the public health and economic wellbeing of the communities it serves.
