Redesigning Philanthropy to Solve Big Challenges

Our biggest challenges, including those in education, can’t be solved by individual organizations working alone. Yet much of funding flows this way and, while well-intentioned, often incentivizes the wrong behaviors: working in silos to address symptom-level problems. In this session, you’ll hear stories of successful change efforts; learn how leaders in philanthropy and beyond can fuel coordinated and sustainable change; and leave with actionable takeaways applicable to any big social need.
