About this event

Join Chicago Booth’s Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation for a Social Impact Leadership Series event in Beijing with James Chen (AB ’82, University of Chicago), a Hong Kong–based venture philanthropist with a global outlook. James’ philanthropic journey travels from early childhood literacy in Greater China, to his campaign Clearly, where James is on a mission to help the 2.5 billion people around the world who suffer from poor vision to see – and he’s marshalling innovators, start-ups, governments, and NGOs to make it happen.

In this compelling talk, James will explore

  • His inspiration for becoming a philanthropist
  • The power of “audacious philanthropy” and why traditional philanthropy models need to change
  • How he plans to reach his ambitious goal of achieving vision correction across the globe
