Please join us for a chance to meet Laurie Michaels, founder of the Open Road Alliance. Laurie is an incredible woman leader on the global philanthropy scene, and you will enjoy learning about her innovative new approach!
Laurie Michaels has spent the last two years building the Open Road Alliance, a philanthropic organization breaking new ground in grant making and development. Open Road's unique investment strategy targets system-wide inefficiencies by removing mid-implementation roadblocks for high-potential projects thereby maximizing effectiveness—and impact. Her approach is applicable to projects across geographies and sectors. To share its experiences and learn from others, Open Road also convenes conversations about the role of philanthropy in our changing global marketplace. Laurie has written about her approach in both the Chronicle of Philanthropy and Stanford Social Innovation Review.
The program will feature an overview of Open Road’s approach from Laurie Michaels, along with an interactive conversation and workshop exploring the role of risk in philanthropy.
Light lunch will be served. WWF members and guests welcome!
