The Rotary Discussion Series is a one-hour virtual event that fosters conversations around impact and forging new directions in the way we think about social investment locally and globally. The program will include conversations with thought leaders from the nonprofit sector and will deepen our understanding of how we work to drive meaningful change and how we deploy resources to realize a shared vision of a better world.

Our panelists will explore questions that include:  
  • In the face of entrenched problems, what kinds of impact are possible for the nonprofit sector?
  • Is impact only about what we can measure?
  • How have different organizations attempted to create a more collective understanding of impact?
  • How do we start to build a shared understanding of impact?
