Giving 2.0: A Conversation with Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen
Friday, May 4, 2012 from 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM (PDT)
What opportunities straddle the intersection of technology, innovation and philanthropy?
The last decade has seen extraordinary innovation in the nonprofit sector, driven significantly by the development and application of new technology. By leveraging the power of the Internet, mobile technology, social networking and more, individual philanthropists and social entrepreneurs are able to create effective, scalable solutions to some of our most pressing global issues.
Bestselling author of Giving 2.0, founder of SV2 (a strategic partner of the SVP network), Stanford lecturer, and successful social entrepreneur, Laura Arrillaga-Andreessen will inspire you with innovative ideas for how technology is disrupting philanthropy and social change.
Following her talk, participants will get the opportunity to chat with Laura and their peers about how to integrate some of these ideas into their own giving.
