Good intentions and good skills aren't enough. Creating meaningful social impact is a dynamic and complicated process.
What are the experiences, opportunities, and lessons aspiring social sector leaders should have? Who should provide these opportunities? How can existing organizations and social sector leaders invest in interns and young staff to ensure they are prepared for the challenges ahead?
Join leaders from SF's social sector for an engaging and provocative discussion exploring the value of scale. This seminar is facilitated by Robin Pendoley, CEO of Thinking Beyond Borders, and it is limited to 30 participants.
About Robin Pendoley
All roads in Robin’s life lead to co-founding Thinking Beyond Borders. Born and raised near San Francisco, he discovered at an early age that youth can affect the disparities and challenges of our world. Robin also learned the need to truly understand a problem and oneself before proactive changes can be made. He sees Thinking Beyond Borders as the actualization of those lessons.
Robin equipped himself by earning a B.A. in International Development Studies from UCLA and a Masters in Education from the Harvard Graduate School of Education. He has lived and worked abroad extensively, both as a student and educator. Robin committed eight years to public schools in Los Angeles and Boston. He served as a teacher, administrator, coach, and college access program administrator.
Robin's blog posts on education and social change have been featured on Forbes, Ashoka, and Innovation Excellence. He also served for three years as the Co-Director of the Colloquium for the Common Good at Opportunity Collaboration, a global poverty conference for sector leaders. Today, he helps shape the US gap year market as both the Co-Director of the USA Gap Year Fairs and as a Board Member for the American Gap Association.
