Funding Social Change, Carrie Rich, the Global Good Fund - September 26th, 8.30-9.30am (STORYTELLING)

At 26 years old, Carrie Rich raised two million dollars in two weeks to start the Global Good Fund (GGF), with the belief that investing in young leaders is the most effective vehicle for addressing society’s most complex social challenges. Four years later, GGF is a thriving leadership development enterprise built by and for social entrepreneurs that identifies high-potential leaders and accelerates their success.

Re-Balancing the Non-profit Model while Re-defining the Narrative a conversation with Nancy Yao Maasbach, President of the Museum of Chinese in America, October 3rd 8.30-9.30am

Nancy Yao Maasbach has a twisty-turny, 21st-century career – from banking at Goldman Sachs, engaging Fortune 500 companies in policy formation at the Council on Foreign Relations, leading U.S.-China relations at the grassroots level at the Yale-China Association, to running a cultural Museum at the Museum of Chinese in America. Nancy will discuss how to fit square, private sector skills into round, non-profit sector holes while considering innovation at the core of a suggested revolution in the U.S. non-profit and cultural models.

Dorothy is a graduate of Yale Law School, and co-founder of the Asylum Seeker Advocacy Project (ASAP), which has prevented over 300 deportations of women and children.
