At the latest program in the Philanthropy and Social Investment series, senior foundations staff and social investors will explore the challenges and opportunities to develop and integrate talent, purpose, and profit at the individual, organizational, and broader social investment ecosystem levels in order to exchange best practices, build new networks and foster collaboration for greater social impact.



  • By 2030, what is your vision for how philanthropy and social investing can address fundamental challenges of climate change, social and economic inequality, population health, and wellbeing? To achieve the vision, what is the investment strategy? The people strategy? The partnership strategy?
  • What would need to change for philanthropy and social investing to act as a lever for larger flows of capital from the public and private sectors to develop scalable solutions that are sufficiently capitalized?
  • How much cross-pollination and common language is there currently between different parts of the ecosystem? Are perceptions of risk and “impact” different for social and corporate actors?
  • How do management strengths and weaknesses vary across the philanthropic ecosystem? What progress are we seeing in donor/funder understanding of organizational needs e.g. to support operating costs?
  • What would it take to get/help the social sector to meaningfully invest in talent development; define the skills needed; and develop structured opportunities for advancement, training, and mobility?
