Proximate Philanthropy: Being Guided by the Expertise of Proximate Leaders

To develop and advance breakthrough design and solutions to the inequitable systems in our country including K12 education and workforce development, funders must look to new ways to build trust and partnerships with social entrepreneurs and leaders. In this session we'll hear from innovative funders and organizations about the practical approaches, models, tools, and methods required to truly center the insights and perspectives of constituents and communities. Attendees will leave this session with concrete methods to implement proximity-centered strategies into their own portfolios, programs, and operations.
