Go Big or Go Home: Nonprofits Moving Beyond Managing Symptoms to Curing Systemic Problems
Thursday, April 3, 12:00-1:30 pm
NYU’s Rosenthal Pavilion at the Kimmel Center (60 Washington Square South, New York, NY)
When is good not good enough? Three socially entrepreneurial non-profit CEO’s, Darell Hammond of KaBOOM!, Billy Shore of Share our Strength, and Amy Celep of Community Wealth Partners share their hard won lessons from the field on realizing sustainable, scalable social change. Their recent Stanford Social Innovation Review article “When Good Is Not Good Enough” argues that the non-profit sector needs to shift its attention from short-term success over symptoms to bold and audacious goals that offer long-term solutions to the root causes of intractable social problems. Come learn how KaBOOM! and Share our Strength have pivoted their orientation from reactive organizations to ones focused on saving play for America’s children and eliminating child hunger.
