SUPER SESSION: Foundations Forward: How Sustainable and Strategic Giving Helps Us All

SDGs and ESG may sound like alphabet soup from time to time but both are important initiatives that help drive corporate and philanthropic priorities. Join our expert panel as we explore sustainable development, ESG and impact investing. This session will present ideas representing a cross-section of technology and grantmaking practices, including how the "rise of technology"-- thoughtfully designed, applied and used-- can facilitate a change in how Foundations operate and make their mark on the populations they support. Program officers and even board members can begin to move beyond transactional activities to more substantive, relationship-based endeavors. You will come away from this session with a picture of the future of Foundations and the impact that those involved in this sector can have.
