Scott Sohr is a Vanderbilt University graduate, who earned his MBA at the university’s Owen Graduate School of Management. In addition to establishing a successful career as a business leader, Scott Sohr contributes to and volunteers with a number of organizations, including Best Buddies International (BBI).

BBI’s aim is to create a world where those with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDDs), including autism, cerebral palsy, Down syndrome, and many others, can successfully integrate into schools, workplaces, and general society. Its ultimate goal is to create a society that is so inclusive that individuals with IDDs no longer need its resources and support.

To bolster its efforts, in 2011 BBI established its 2020 Initiative with the goal of making BBI a household name. BBI’s efforts under this initiative include opening offices in every US state, creating 2,500 school-based chapters, and providing public speaking training to 4,000 of its Buddy Ambassadors.
