Yesterday marked the opening of our Global Philanthropy Forum conference here in Washington DC. We heard from Queen Rania Al Abdullah of Jordan and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as well as others in a series of smaller breakouts. Each session dove deeply into the daunting challenges we face as a nation, and as a global community, and speakers offered insights into how and where philanthropy can play a role.
To follow events from the conference, check out our web simulcast here, and read the text of Hillary’s remarks here. A sampling of press that has come out so far includes an article from The Chronicle of Philanthropy’s Conference Notes section, an interview with Jane Wales in The Harvard Business Review, and a post on PhilanTopic.
More updates to come with day 2!
