Previous sessions have focused on the many meanings of "impact philanthropy", emerging models of grantmaker-grantee relations, methodologies to address systemic societal issues, social entrepreneurship, and more.
These courses are coordinated by Richard Marker, an internationally known thought leader in the grantmaking and philanthropy field. He will be joined by several highly respected and prominent philanthropy experts.
