About this event

The global spread of the COVID-19 pandemic has completely upended the political, economic and social order as we know it, forcing everyone to rethink and reset current value systems, social development models and problem-solving approaches. Looking forward, how do we move ahead?

Our answer is: connectivity. New connectivity creates new momentum.

Bearing that question in mind, The Stanford PACS China Conference aims to develop and disseminate knowledge to advance and improve the practice of philanthropy and social innovation in China. Bringing together our and other notable faculty and researchers, philanthropists and investors, social entrepreneurs, business and nonprofit leaders in the US, China and globally, this conference explores the role of social innovation and philanthropy in China, and provides a unique opportunity to exchange ideas and best practices in strategic philanthropy, nonprofit management and social innovation among practitioners and thought leaders in Asia and around the world. We wish to create an ecosystem that engages everyone with a sense of purpose, helping to co-create the needed transformation towards a more inclusive, just and sustainable society.

The three-day virtual conference on November 18-20 (China) and 17-19 (US) will focus on social innovation in the post-pandemic era. The summit will discuss new connectivity creating new momentum and explore three pathways to impact: Making Business for Good the New Normal, Technology for Human Benefit, and New power and New leadership. Through a series of remarks, panel conversations and workshops, the conference hopes to be a connecting platform for scholars, business leaders and changemakers in Asia and around the world to share insights and interact with each other.
