Mission Forward: The Power of Community Building
Mission Forward is a series of candid and thought-provoking conversations with some of the nation’s most intriguing social changemakers. Hosted by C.Fox Communications in partnership with The Chronicle of Philanthropy, Mission Forward events spotlight individuals who have taken calculated risks to drive their missions forward, and the philanthropist, partner, or investor who helped bring their idea to life.
Each conversation is moderated by Carrie Fox and designed to be practical, engaging and, at times, emotional— examining deeply what it takes to make social change happen, even in some of the most trying circumstances.
Join us on Tuesday, November 15 in Washington, D.C. for a very special event in our 2016 series, featuring Bill Milliken, Founder and Vice Chairman Communities in Schools and President of LeaderComm with Paul Lambert, Vice President of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame to discuss their new Springfield, MA-based partnership, designed to inspire youth in need towards success through interaction and mentorships with Hall of Famers.
We’ll explore how the partnership between two unexpected partners is taking hold—and now spurring new conversations about their shared vision to revitalize a community—and why this partnership has the potential to serve as a model for many other social innovators across the country. This is a must-attend event for organizations who are curious about how to build effective partnerships designed with measurable impact in mind.
Lunch will be served.
