Morris Series Lecture: Real Impact: Are Philanthropy and Investment Taking Us Far Enough?

What does it take to bring about lasting social change to uplift economies, communities, and cultures? Increasingly, the private and philanthropic sectors are collaborating in search of impact: venture capital for social change, philanthropy for public advocacy and policy change, small scale social entrepreneurship to address seemingly intractable challenges. In this panel, we will explore innovation, trends, obstacles, and significant opportunities in global social impact.

Join us on Tuesday, May 2 for a discussion with Mike Bezos, Co-Founder and Director of the Bezos Family Foundation; Sally Osberg, President and CEO of the Skoll Foundation; and Chamath Palihapitiya, Founder and CEO of Social Capital; in conversation with James Manyika, Senior Partner at McKinsey & Company and Director of the McKinsey Global Institute.

The Morris Series is made possible by a generous donation from Aspen Institute Trustee Diane L. Morris. This Series brings the mission and work of the Institute to an invited group of supporters, friends, and new audiences in the San Francisco area. The Series addresses innovation and technology with an underlying theme of leadership based on enduring values and nonpartisan exchange.
