Join EPIP for a discussion of two featured podcasts, According to Need, a project of 99% Invisible and Philanthropy and Social Movements produced by students at the Harvard Kennedy School.
The way homelessness has exploded in California over the last decade, you’d think there was no system in place to address it. But there is one — it just wasn’t designed to help everyone. According to Need is a documentary podcast from 99% Invisible that asks: What are we doing to get people into housing?
Heavyweights in philanthropy look a little different these days: tech phenoms unafraid of risk and hungry to problem solve, at times to a fault. Taking a historical lens to American company towns, we consider whether tech philanthropists can adopt and scale the blueprint a foundation used to revitalize a rural company town. In Episode 8 of Philanthropy and Social Movements, we examine how the tech industry can get better at doing good.
Join us in a conversation to explore homelessness, the Bay Area housing crisis and philanthropy’s role. We’ll take this time to discuss our own perspectives and experiences on the topics and questions presented in Episode 1: Prologue of According to Need and Episode 8: Tech Philanthropy of Philanthropy and Social Movements podcast series.
When: April 22 | 5:30 - 6:30 p.m.
