Proximity is Powerful Technology for Change

Breakthrough solutions for our most intractable problems often come from the communities most impacted by inequitable systems — yet the social sector struggles to invest accordingly. How do we break away from the dominant culture and strategies of philanthropy to co-design solutions with the people closest to the issues we’re trying to solve? This panel will delve into how philanthropic leaders are shifting culture and funding structure and getting closer to transformational impact.
