2021 Virtual Summit: A FORGING FORWARD Production

March 2, 2021

APRIL 14th-16th 




Changing Our World and ONE HUNDRED are global thought leaders and conveners, rallying philanthropic networks, best-in-class nonprofit organizations, and leaders in corporate purpose, so that we can make a more dramatic impact together…than we could apart. We pride ourselves in an entrepreneurial approach to the business of advancing social issues by leveraging our insights and expertise to address urgent challenges in the space. At the onset of the pandemic, we recognized the need to come together as a sector to have candid conversations with experts across healthcare, higher education, foundations, corporations and an array of nonprofit organizations to discuss the economic, philanthropic and social impacts of COVID-19 – and what we can collectively do about them. In March 2020, we launched FORGING FORWARD, a virtual philanthropic conference series focused on idea sharing, innovative solutions, and a path forward. Since then, we have hosted 40+ sessions featuring more than 100 guests to dive deep on a range of timely topics. Building on this momentum, we are launching a Forging Forward Virtual Summit in April 2021.
