Dealing with Dilemmas: What Would You Do?

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Please note: This session is closed to media.
In philanthropy, individuals, families and organizations are challenged to make critical decisions where the choice makes a significant difference in peoples’ lives—for example, choosing a particular target population or region for funding, selecting among multiple worthy organizations, deciding when and how to end support, or managing the tradeoff between providing less intense support to many or deeper support to few. What human and informational resources do you call upon to address these dilemmas? This highly participatory session will pose an interactive case study challenge and give participants the opportunity to wrestle with the issues from  a number of perspectives. You also will have the opportunity to bring in dilemmas you face in your decision-making for some crowdsourced solutions.
